Ear Wax Removal in London
Earwax is also known as cerumen. It is a substance that is brown/yellowish in colour and produced in the ear canal. There are two distinct types of earwax; the dry-type and the wet-type. This is majorly determined by an individual’s genetic makeup.
Ear wax consists of:
Dust, debris & foreign objects Old skin cells Oily secretions from glands in the ear canal
When does Ear Wax need to be Removed?
Small amounts of wax in the ear canals are normal and keep the ear healthy. Large build ups of ear wax can cause the ears to become blocked.
Common symptoms of excessive wax include; pain, feeling of fullness, itching, ringing and partial/complete hearing loss.

if you have wax in your ear and would like it removed safely without any water being syringed or jetted into your ear, you may want to choose to have your ears microsuctioned. If there is no ear wax, we will give you advice and/or a hearing test as appropriate.
Performed by Experts
The microsuction technique uses gentle suction to clean the ear, and is much safer and more comfortable than all other forms of ear cleaning, including syringing and irrigation. A small, thin probe is directed at the ear wax and/or infection discharge in the ear canal, and the gentle suction is applied to remove the blockage. With microsuction there is no need for pre-treatment, e.g. olive oil or ear drops.
