Microsuction, still the safest and quickest method of ear wax removal.
Mircosuction Ear Wax Removal is a safe and tested way to remove ear wax to allow you to hear as normal again.
It is not necessary to pre soften the ear wax with drops for a long period prior to microsuction (which was advice given for syringing) as the wax can become too soft and in some cases may mean we are unable to access the wax that lies on the ear drum itself; as this is a very delicate membrane.
Ideally for microsuction only need to soften a few days prior – this allows the wax to be soft enough to remove safely as it removed in one plug that moves away from the ear drum altogether as one.
We also now offer Irrigation – which similar syringing but a new gentlier machine and technique are applied to assist in removal of soft wax that lie directly on the ear drum. It gently pulses to ensure a gentlier and safer angle and technique are applied.
So, what does this mean for The Clear Clinics and it’s clientele?… At The Clear Clinics we much prefer microsuction and it always our first option, although on occasion we have been presented with wax too soft for microsuction that sits directly on the ear drum. In these cases previously we have removed as much as we can safely then advised using eardrops to aid removing this.
Now we are able to offer an additional service of irrigation that can remove soft wax sitting directly on the ear drum.
