The micro-suction technique used at our clinics are the same as those practiced & preferred by ENT specialists. It includes the use of a suction tube + gentle suction pump. In some cases the nurse may use fine instruments like tiny curettes to help remove wax.
At all times the nurse is using a microscope and plenty of light, ensuring that they can clearly see the entire ear canal at all times. This makes microsuction an incredibly safe procedure.
Microsuction is regarded by medical professionals such as ENT Specialists, GP's & Audiologists, as the preferred ear wax removal technique and is the treatment most likely to provide full and total clearance of problematic wax, chronic ear skin conditions, foreign bodies and infection occlusions.
