Ear Microsuction is the gold standard technique for ear wax removal. Your Earklear clinician will use a microscopic or magnified lens to illuminate and magnify the ear canal and ear drum, so that the practitioner can observe each part of the outer ear in high definition.
A low-pressure suction ENT device is used which is hygienic, efficient and safe to gently remove the wax
Sterile single use only equipment is used at all times.
The risk of ear drum perforation is greatly reduced using this procedure as opposed to syringing.
Many GP practices no longer offer syringing due to risk factors of perforation and funding.
The procedure does not take long and is the most modern, advanced, safest and pain-free form of ear wax removal.
Despite the safety of microsuction, as with any procedure, it carries a small amount of risk.
The most common side effect is some dizziness, fainting or vertigo during or shortly after the procedure. This is temporary and is due to the fact that microsuction ‘cools’ the temperature of the ear canal. As with any procedure, there is a small risk of infection.
Tinnitus symptoms occasionally occur post procedure, but usually only last for 2-3 days then subside
If you already suffer from tinnitus this can be exacerbated for a few days after treatment due to the wax having dampened down hearing prior to treatment. Once being removed sound awareness increases. This will normally settle.
The treatment is suitable for patients with a history of perforated eardrum where syringing is not suitable.
Microsuction is suitable for most patients. There are very few patients for whom microsuction is not suitable:
People who have narrow ear canals find the wax doesn’t work its way out naturally.
A build up of wax is more likely to occur in older adults as wax becomes drier as we age.
Patients with certain scalp and skin conditions like psoriasis or a lot of hair in your ear canals.
Hearing aids, ear bud headphones and the use of cotton buds stimulate the glands within the ear to produce more wax and excess wax becomes compacted.
There are two genetically determined types of ear wax – either wet (dominant) or dry.
