About Microsuction

Microsuction is a wax removal technique using a very fine sterile suction device under a microscope.

The gentle suction device is used to provide pain free and immediate results, and whilst using the microscope the Audiologist can clearly see inside the ear canal during the procedure making it an entirely controlled treatment.

In contrast to the common syringing/irrigation procedures, no water is involved, making Microsuction the safest and most effective way of removing excessive wax or debris from the ear canals. The patient will only need to apply ear drops (e.g Olive Oil, Earol) for a couple of days before the procedure. 

Benefits of Ear Wax Removal


Ear wax, or medically known as ‘cerumen’ is a natural substance produced by the ear canal which aims to trap dust and other small particles to prevent them from reaching and potentially damaging the eardrum.

Normally the wax along with any trapped dust or debris falls out of the ear, however for some people the wax remains in the ear canal, becomes impacted and causes more issues.  

If impacted wax is left untreated it can cause decreased hearing, ‘blocked’ or fullness sensation, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), dizziness, ear pain and irritation in the ear canal.
