Overview

Understanding Earwax Build-up

Earwax, a normal bodily secretion, protects our ears from dust and dirt. However, excessive earwax can lead to discomfort and hearing loss, affecting approximately 2.3 million people each year in the UK.

When Treatment is Recommended

Microsuction ear wax removal is recommended for individuals suffering from hearing loss and discomfort due to earwax build-up. This treatment is particularly suitable for those seeking a convenient appointment at their chosen location, be it at home or their place of work.

Overview of Treatments Available

Ear microsuction is the latest technique in ear wax removal. It provides a prompt solution to earwax build-up by sucking the wax out using a tiny tube attached to a suction apparatus. This method is gentler than traditional ear irrigation as it does not involve the introduction of fluid into the ear.
