FAQ'S 

What is Micro-suction?

Miro-suction has been proven to be the 'Gold standard' of the removal of wax. We use a Micro-suction procedure. This is a painless technique which involves a low pressure suction probe being inserted into the ear to remove any troublesome ear wax or debris. The microscope used if fundamental to the procedure giving the clinical specialist the full view inside the ear, enabling pinpoint accuracy. This method does not involve any water and this latest technology means your wax removal will be quick, comfortable and effective.

Symptoms include;

  • Ear ache
  • Dizziness
  • Itchiness
  • Hearing Difficulties 
  • Tinnitus (Ringing noises in the ear)
  • Ear infections

Suffering from any of these symptoms, contact to book in.

 

Do I need to do anything prior to my treatment?

We highly recommend using olive oil drops twice a day for a couple of days to ensure that the wax is soft enough to be removed safely. However, if you suffer from a perforated ear drum or a mastoid cavity please seek medical advise prior to drop treatments.
