Trusted Expertise and Exceptional Care

Ear wax (cerumen) is naturally occurring in our ears. It is designed to protect our ears against foreign bodies and infection with its antibacterial and lubricating properties.

Those who wear hearing aids, have anatomically narrower or hairier ear canals, or who use cotton buds are more likely to produce a larger volume of wax.

They may require ear wax removal services more often than others. Symptoms like ear pain, dizziness or hearing loss can be indicative of a blockage in the ear due to excess wax.

Since the ears are so sensitive, they require careful attention throughout any ear cleaning procedure.

There are many options for ear wax removal in Harrow, but microsuction is the safest, most hygienic, and effective of these methods.

Ear cleaning techniques include microsuction, irrigation, candling, syringing and manual instrument extraction.

Microsuction is regarded so highly for ear wax removal because it offers a reduced risk of damage to the eardrum.

It involves a finely-calibrated suction device, akin to a small vacuum cleaner, and a microscope to ensure a clear view of the anatomical structures of the ear.

This equipment is conveniently portable, so the ear wax removal can be performed easily from a clinic in Ruislip to a patient’s own home or workplace.

The procedure is painless, and is usually complete within twenty minutes.


Micro suction is made up of two words: “Micro” refers to the operating microscopes that can either be large floor standing units, or can be incorporated into glasses, in whch case they are known as operating loupes.

“Suction” refers to the medical suction pump that is attached to a tube and a 2 millimetre suction wand, which is used to suction the wax from your ear. Micro suction requires a good knowledge of the anatomy of the ear, along with training in how to safely use the equipment.

For this reason, microsuction is performed by ENT surgeons and Audiologists, who both specialise in the ear, and by specialist nurses who have had further training. Micro suction only removes wax from the ear – because it doesn’t spray water into the ear it is safe to use after ear surgery, or when the eardrum is perforated.

The Micro Suction Practitioner uses a powerful operating microscope and a bright light source, so he or she can see exactly what is happening inside your ear, so the procedure is the safest of all.

Why Microsuction Earwax Removal Process

Precision and Safety

Microsuction allows for precise removal of earwax without causing damage to the delicate structures of the ear canal or the eardrum.

Unlike methods like ear syringing or ear candling, which can carry risks of injury or discomfort, microsuction is performed using a specialized microscope and suction device by trained healthcare professionals, ensuring safety and effectiveness.

Suitability for Impacted Earwax

In cases where earwax is particularly stubborn or impacted, traditional methods like ear irrigation may not be effective.

Microsuction is especially well-suited for these situations, as it can gently and efficiently remove even hardened or deeply lodged earwax without the need for pre-softening with ear drops or the risk of pushing the wax deeper into the ear canal.

This makes it an ideal choice for individuals prone to recurrent earwax buildup or those with narrow or sensitive ear canals.

Other Methods of Earwax Removal

Ear Drops

Ear drops can be bought from the chemist over the counter and are the cheapest method of wax removal.

Ear drops are commonly marketed as a cheap way of removing earwax at home.

For an ordinary member of the public, the choice of different branded and unbranded products can be overwhelming.

Ear Sprays

Ear sprays are specifically formulated to help soften earwax, making it easier to remove without causing discomfort or injury to the delicate structures of the ear canal.

Ear sprays often contain ingredients like saline solution, hydrogen peroxide, glycerin, or almond oil, which work to break down the earwax and facilitate its removal.

Ear Syringing / Ear Irrigation

Ear irrigation is normally performed by a GP practice nurse, a disrict nurse, and by some Audiologists.

Traditionally, a meal ear syringe was loaded with warm water, the metal tip placed into the ear canal.

Dry Instrument Removal

Dry instrument ear wax removal is normally performed by an ENT surgeon or an Audiologist.

The pratitioner uses a selection of different shaped instruments called Jobson Horne probes or curettes.

Ear Candling

While popular in some circles, ear candling involves inserting a hollow candle into the ear and lighting it.

The supposed suction created is claimed to draw out earwax, but there's little scientific evidence to support its effectiveness, and it can be dangerous.

Manual Removal

In cases where the earwax is impacted or stubborn, a doctor may manually remove it using specialized tools like a curette or suction device.

This should only be done by a trained healthcare professional to prevent injury to the ear canal or eardrum.

Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced by glands in the ear canal. It serves several important functions, including lubricating the ear canal, protecting the ear from dust and foreign particles, and helping to prevent infection.

Symptoms of excess ear wax can include hearing loss, earache, a feeling of fullness in the ear, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), or itching. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is advisable to seek professional evaluation and ear wax removal as needed.

While there are various home remedies and over-the-counter products available for ear wax removal, it is important to exercise caution. Improper ear cleaning techniques or the use of sharp objects such as cotton swabs can push wax deeper into the ear canal or cause injury. It is recommended to seek professional ear wax removal from a trained healthcare provider.

Microsuction is considered one of the safest and most effective methods of ear wax removal available. Unlike ear syringing or irrigation, which involves flushing the ear canal with water, microsuction uses gentle suction to remove wax, making it suitable for individuals with a perforated eardrum or a history of ear surgeries.

Yes, excessive ear wax buildup can increase the risk of ear infections by trapping bacteria and creating a moist environment conducive to bacterial growth.

Ear wax is produced by ceruminous glands in the ear canal. The production of ear wax is influenced by factors such as genetics, age, ethnicity, and hormonal changes. Some individuals naturally produce more ear wax than others.

Excess ear wax buildup, also known as cerumen impaction, can be caused by factors such as narrow ear canals, excessive ear cleaning, the use of hearing aids or earplugs, or certain medical conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.

Untreated excess ear wax buildup can lead to complications such as ear infections, ear canal obstruction, hearing loss, or eardrum perforation. It is important to seek treatment if you experience symptoms of ear wax buildup.
