Ear wax removal – Micro suction

Treatment for blocked ears

Ear wax removal by micro suction is a gentle process that uses a fine, low pressure suction pump to safely remove ear wax from blocked ears. A qualified audiologist will examine your ears using a video otoscope (camera). We will then show you the extent of the ear wax blockage before treatment commences and your clear ear canals after treatment. In most cases, pre-treatment with clinical grade olive oil is not normally required. We prefer not to use irrigation and syringing which are less safe than micro suction.

  • Safe:  Micro suction is the preferred treatment method for ear wax removal.
  • Comfortable:  Micro suction removes blockages in minutes.
  • Qualified:  We are qualified in micro suction ear wax removal.
  • Insurance:  We are fully insured, registered hearing healthcare professionals.
