Micro-suction earwax removal


Micro-suction earwax removal
Getting an opinion from a doctor may help determine whether a build-up of earwax is causing your ear trouble.

If you are suffering from temporary hearing loss, tinnitus or earaches, then a build-up of ear wax may be potentially to blame.


Removing earwax build-up from your ear canals may help reduce the symptoms you are experiencing.


Here at The Clinic, we offer micro-suction earwax removal as an alternative to older methods such as ear syringing.


What is micro-suction earwax removal?

You may be wondering “what is micro-suction earwax removal, and how does it differ to other methods?”


Well, to start with, micro-suction earwax removal is a gentle and clean way to remove the build-up of earwax from ear canals.


How can earwax build-up cause temporary hearing loss, tinnitus and earaches?


Temporary hearing loss: A build-up of earwax can cause temporary hearing loss as it may block your ears.


Tinnitus: Tinnitus is a noise, fluttering or ringing in the ears. There are multiple reasons why you may be experiencing tinnitus, such as an ear injury, though a build-up of earwax can sometimes cause tinnitus.

How? Too much earwax can irritate your eardrum.


Earaches: An excess of earwax commonly causes earaches and infections.



How to look after your ears:

  • Don’t insert q-tips/cotton buds into your ears. You may think that you are cleaning them, but instead, you may be pushing the earwax further into your ear canal. Also, using q-tips/cotton buds can cause eardrum perforation when inserted too far. Eardrum perforation is not only detrimental to your hearing but very painful too.

  • When the insides of your ears are itchy, don’t insert anything to scratch them.

  • Do visit your doctor or medical professional if you think that you have too much earwax.
