Why is  micro-suction the best option?

  •   It is very gentle and only uses the  strength of the suction and cannot remove anything it shouldn’t

  •   It is pain free and effective.

  •   It’s a dry procedure that has a low risk of infection both during and following the procedure.

  •   No need to use drops beforehand.

  •   The audiologist can see exactly what they’re doing as they carry out the procedure.

  •  Micro-suction allows for a small amount of wax to be left behind which reduces the risk of bacterial    infection.

Post wax removal management.

  • Regular use of softening products which can be discussed in your appointment.

  • The use of cotton buds, match sticks, pins, hoppy candles etc to try to remove wax build up is strongly discouraged.
