Microsuction Earwax Removal is available from Hummingbird Hearingcare in Tarporley and surrounding areas.
What is Earwax Microsuction?
Microsuction is one of the safest methods to remove wax from the ear. A microscope magnifies the ear, making it easier to assess the ear canal and remove the wax. A suction device clears the ear without the use of water. The gentle suction device works like a vacuum cleaner so can be noisy but is quick and usually painless.
The procedure tends to be less uncomfortable if a wax softening oil or drop is used for two nights before, and on the morning of, the appointment.
Ear Microsuction is now the preferred method of wax removal at Hummingbird Hearincare Tarporley however this is not available in most GP surgeries and has become increasingly difficult to get appointments with the NHS.
Ear Microsuction is thought to be the safest method of earwax removal, as the wax can be visualised during the procedure using a microscope this allows our audiologist, Sam to avoid touching/damaging the sensitive skin of the ear canal and the eardrum where possible, so the treatment is more comfortable and a much lower risk of complications.
If you believe you may have hearing problems or have noticed you are no longer hearing as well as you used to and you are wanting a hearing test it is important to make sure you have no abnormal wax build-up as this will affect the results or may actually be the problem!
