Microsuction

Microsuction is a method of ear wax removal that uses a specialized suction device and a microscope to safely and effectively remove ear wax from the ear canal. The procedure is performed by experienced audiologists or ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialists, and typically takes only a few minutes to complete. During the microsuction procedure, the practitioner uses a microscope to visualize the ear canal and the ear wax and then uses a delicate suction device to gently remove the ear wax. Microsuction is considered to be the best method of ear wax removal because it is quick, gentle, and typically results in little to no discomfort. In addition to its safety and effectiveness, microsuction is also preferred by many patients because it does not require the use of any water or other liquids, which can be messy and uncomfortable.

What is Ear wax?

Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is a naturally occurring substance that is produced in the ear canal. It acts as a protective barrier, trapping dust and debris and preventing it from entering the inner ear. Ear wax is composed of oils, dead skin cells, and other substances that help to keep the ear canal moisturized and prevent infection.
Normally, ear wax moves naturally from the ear canal to the opening of the ear, where it  falls out. However, sometimes ear wax can build up and cause blockages, leading to symptoms such as decreased hearing, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and discomfort or pain in the ear. In these cases, it may be necessary to seek medical attention and have the ear wax removed.

Symptoms of ear wax build-up

Ear wax build-up can cause a variety of symptoms, including decreased hearing or muffled sounds, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), itching or discomfort in the ear canal, pain or pressure in the ear, and dizziness or vertigo. If left untreated, ear wax build-up can lead to  complications such as hearing loss or infections. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is recommended to seek medical attention and have the ear wax removed.

Ear syringing in South Kensington

Ear syringing is a method of ear wax removal that involves the use of a syringe filled with warm water to flush the ear canal. The syringe is carefully aimed into the ear canal, and the water is gently squirted in, causing the ear wax to soften and become dislodged.
While ear syringing has been used for many years as a method of ear wax removal, it can be messy and uncomfortable, and can also be dangerous if not performed properly, as it can push the ear wax further into the ear canal or cause damage to the eardrum. Additionally, ear syringing does not always effectively remove all of the ear wax, and multiple treatments may be necessary. For these reasons, microsuction is generally considered to be the best method of ear wax removal.

ear candling

Ear candling

Ear candling, also known as ear coning or thermal-auricular therapy, is an alternative method of ear wax removal that involves the use of a long, tapered candle. The candle is placed in the ear and lit, creating a gentle suction that is said to remove ear wax and other impurities. However, there is little scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of ear candling, and the procedure can be dangerous, as it has been known to cause burns, perforations of the eardrum, and other injuries. For these reasons, it is generally not recommended as a method of ear wax removal.

Microsuction, on the other hand, is a safe and highly effective method of ear wax removal that involves the use of a specialized suction device and a microscope.
