Delivering Microsuction Earwax Removal Service in Edinburgh
What is Microsuction?
Microsuction is a procedure undertaken by ENTs or qualified medical professionals which uses gentle suction to remove excessive or troublesome ear wax or debris from the ear canal. Earwax microsuction is performed with the aid of an operating microscope and a finely calibrated suction device.
Bringing You From Plugged To Clear, Safely & Easily

No materials or liquids are introduced to the ear during the procedure. In most earwax removal centres earwax removal is undertaken by ear irrigation, which involves injecting a jet of water into the ear to help dislodge the wax. The old ear syringing method is very rarely performed any longer because of safety issues. Ear irrigation is is sometimes not effective and some Patients may find it uncomfortable or unpleasant.
Microsuction is usually well tolerated by most people, it delivers excellent and rapid results and tends to be much more effective than any of the traditional wax removal methods. It is also completely safe, as the professional can clearly see what he or she is doing inside your ear canal.
Microsuction Earwax Removal
We offer a range of ear cleaning methods at our hearing aid centres. We are fully trained in different wax management techniques, including ear wax removal by irrigation and microsuction earwax removal. Microsuction ear wax removal is a safe, quick and comfortable procedure, during which wax is gently removed using a special medical suction device.
Micro suction is the preferred method of treatment for both medical professionals and patients alike. It delivers guaranteed effective and safe removal of earwax.
Micro suction is completely comfortable and pain free, in most cases the blockage is removed in a couple of minutes.
Only fully qualified and experienced audiologists with additional training in aural microsuction earwax removal are qualified to offer micro suction earwax removal services. So you can be sure you are receiving the best care available.
Pre- Treatment With Oil
Usually micro suction does not need pre-treatment with earwax drops, most people will have their earwax removed in one session quite easily without pre-treatment. However, if you wish to use drops, treatment of the ear or ears with two days of Earol is the best preparation. During the procedure we will examine your ear using our microscope, then using a fine low pressure suction device, we will safely remove the earwax blockage.
