What is microsuction?
Microsuction is a method of ear wax removal that is typically performed by qualified audiologists or wax removal clinicians. This procedure involves using a small tip connected to a vacuum pump that is carefully inserted into the ear canal. The tip is then gently used to suction out the excess ear wax.
Microsuction is regarded as the safest and cleanest method of ear wax removal and is the most requested removal method used at The Hearing Care Partnership. However, depending on the level of ear wax buildup, medical history and thorough examination of the ear, alternative methods might be deemed more suitable.
