Microsuction ear wax removal
Microsuction ear wax removal is a safe and effective method for removing earwax from the ear canal. This is the main method of ear wax removal we favour at Verified Hearing. The procedure is performed by one of our Audiologists using a micro-suction device, which is a specialized tool that gently removes earwax without damaging the delicate skin and tissues of the ear. This method is highly effective in removing even the most impacted earwax and provides immediate relief from symptoms such as ringing in the ears, hearing loss, or discomfort. Microsuction is considered one of the safest and most effective methods for earwax removal, making it a popular choice for many patients seeking relief from ear discomfort.
Earwax, also known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced by the ceruminous glands in the ear canal. It is a mixture of dead skin cells, hair, and oils that serve to protect the ear from dust, bacteria, and other foreign particles. Our ears are typically self-cleaning and wax moves towards the opening of the ear canal, where it eventually falls out or is wiped away. In some cases, earwax can build up and become impacted, causing symptoms such as ringing in the ears, hearing loss, or discomfort. When this occurs, it may be necessary to seek the help of a healthcare professional for proper earwax removal.
Symptoms of excess wax buildup
Excess earwax buildup can cause a variety of symptoms that can range from mild to severe. Some common symptoms of earwax buildup include ringing in the ears, partial hearing loss, itching in the ear, pain or discomfort in the ear, a feeling of fullness in the ear, and dizziness. It is important to never try to remove earwax using cotton swabs, as this can push the wax further into the ear canal and cause further impaction.
If you experience any of these symptoms, seek the help of a healthcare professional to determine if earwax buildup is the cause and to receive proper treatment.
Ear syringing is a method for removing earwax from the ear canal. It involves flushing warm water into the ear canal to loosen and remove the impacted earwax. The procedure is usually quick and painless and can provide immediate relief from symptoms such as ringing in the ears, partial hearing loss, or discomfort. However, ear syringing is not recommended for people with perforated eardrums, as the water may cause further damage. Additionally, ear syringing can be less effective in removing hard or impacted earwax compared to other methods such as microsuction earwax removal. At Verified Hearing, we use microsuction as the main ear wax removal procedure.
Ear candling, also known as ear coning, is a traditional technique that involves inserting a narrow, cone-shaped candle into the ear canal and lighting the opposite end. The theory behind ear candling is that the heat from the candle will create suction, which will draw out earwax and impurities from the ear. However, ear candling has been widely discredited by medical professionals as a safe and effective method of earwax removal. There is no scientific evidence to support the claims that ear candling can remove earwax or that it has any therapeutic benefits. In fact, ear candling can be dangerous and has been known to cause burns, injury to the ear canal, and hearing damage. It is recommended that individuals seeking earwax removal use only proven and safe method, such as microsuction earwax removal.

What is ear microsuction?
Ear microsuction can be likened to an ear vacuum. It is essentially the process of cleaning out your ear wax safely with a suction machine whilst using a microscope as the primary viewing equipment. The suction machine is used at calibrated pressure levels to remove ear wax safely from your ears. “Micro” refers to the microscope used to look into your ears during this procedure, while “suction” refers to the machine used to draw out the ear wax, hence “microsuction”.
Endoscopic wax removal is a more advanced option for looking into your ears during ear cleaning as it provides a real-time view of your ears. We always offer our customers endoscopic wax removal as a first option because it is the most advanced technique. Most of our clients enjoy seeing the video recording of the ear cleaning process. We use our CE-marked endoscope called VerifEYEd View.
What is the best way to remove ear wax?
Various techniques can be used for professional ear cleaning. The best technique depends on the nature of ear wax to be removed.
Our preferred method at Verified Hearing is endoscopic wax removal using a suction machine because this is the most advanced technique. However, in some cases, we would need to use a sterilised instrument, such as a Jobson Horne or ear hook, to remove the ear wax gently. Patients sensitive to loud sounds or who suffer from tinnitus may find the sound of a suction machine unpleasant. So, we tend to avoid using it in such cases.
Although ear irrigation is becoming less and less popular, there are times when this is the most suitable technique for ear wax removal. In such cases, we do not hesitate to employ it, using only the safest irrigation machine.
Does Verified Hearing offer children’s ear wax removal services?
Yes. We have a senior paediatric audiologist who is part of our team. We can safely clear ear wax from your child’s ear(s).
