What is ear wax?
Ear wax isn’t something we usually give much thought to until it starts to cause us problems. It’s a versatile substance that is naturally formed by the glands in the outer ear canal. Ear wax is very important for your ear health and serves as a protective layer against dirt, debris, and bacteria.
Without ear wax and the fine hairs in your ears, dust and other foreign bodies could end up getting into your ear canals and damaging your eardrum. Ear wax also helps prevent ear infections and moisturises the inside of your ears.
Why do i have excess ear wax?
Your ears are impressive in many ways, including the fact that they are self-cleaning. Because of this, you usually won’t need to worry about removing earwax. It only becomes a problem if your ears are producing too much of it.
A buildup of ear wax can happen because of:
- Narrow ear canals
- Ear infections
- Swimmer’s ear
- Using hearing aids
The most common cause of build up, however, is the use of cotton buds or swabs to clean inside the ear. While using them may seem like they are helping, they usually just end up pushing wax back into the ear canal.
Do i need ear wax removal?
Everyone’s ears are different. Some people may never need to have their ears cleaned whilst others may need it regularly. If you are experiencing the symptoms of a build up, then ear wax removal through suctioning may help improve your quality of life.
Symptoms to look out for include:
- Hearing loss
- Blocked ears or ears that feel ‘full’
- Ear pain
- Ear itchiness
- Muffled sounds

What is ear microsuction?
You don’t have to suffer in silence! Book in today with one of our expertly trained pharmacists to perform a safe, fast, and effective procedure known as Earwax Microsuctioning. It’s a simple and straightforward procedure where a small suction device is guided into the ear to gently remove any excess earwax.
Your appointment with one of our highly skilled clinicians will last approximately 30 minutes. Following the removal of some of the wax, tests will be conducted in order to determine any potential hearing issues. In rare cases where any issues are identified, you will be referred for further treatment.
Is it safe?
Ear Microsuction is the safest and most trusted way to remove earwax and you don’t have to worry about any damage to your ear drum or to the sensitive parts of your ear.
There is a microscopic camera attached to the end of the device that gives the practitioner a clear view into the ear throughout the entire procedure. The camera also ensures that all wax is removed and if there are any problems, they will be spotted right away.
Another benefit to microsuction earwax removal is that you don’t need to do anything to prepare yourself before the procedure. All you have to do is come to your appointment and a member of our highly skilled team will take it from there.
Frequently asked questions
Ear microsuction is a simple process which entails the use of a gentle vacuum machine to leave the ear dry and free of wax. The end results for the patient are better hearing and cleaner ears.
Most of the time, our ears keep themselves clean and free of dust and debris, but there are occasions when it doesn’t happen, your age or a possible infection might cause a build up. If you have a wax build-up, an infection or some unwanted debris in the ear, our pharmacists may decide the best way to make things right is via ear microsuction.
In general the procedure isn’t painful at all, although it can be somewhat noisy. The skin inside the ear canal is sensitive so it’s important to stay still when asked to do so.
Because the process is carried out with the help of a powerful microscope, more wax and other debris can be reached and removed. The procedure tends to be quicker and more comfortable than other forms of wax removal. The main benefit after is usually a significant improvement in hearing.
Many people choose to have an ear microsuction procedure on a regular basis to keep their ears cleaned, although the regularity always depends on the individual needs of the patient. Some choose to undergo microsuction every three months while others may do so once a year.
