ear wax removal in manchester

Microsuction ear wax removal involves safely drawing out any wax using a suction probe. Unlike syringing, it is performed under direct observation using medical loupes. This means that the ear is magnified and the audiologist can see the inside of your ear during the procedure, reducing the risk of perforation. Water isn’t used so there is less risk of infection.

Microsuction Ear Wax Removal

Microsuction is seen as the ‘gold standard’ for ear wax removal and should only be performed by trained professionals. At Pinnaclear, we provide this service both in the clinic and in the comfort of your own home.

Other Methods of Ear Wax Removal

Olive oil ear drops

Olive oil ear drops

Olive oil ear drops can help to soften any ear wax so that it can naturally work its way out. If there is too much ear wax or the wax is hard and impacted, the olive oil will soften the wax and help with professional ear wax removal.

Cotton Buds

You may feel that you are removing any troublesome wax by using cotton buds due to the presence of wax at the end of a bud, however, if you do feel blocked with ear wax, using cotton buds will only make this worse by pushing the wax further down the ear canal. You can prevent the risk of infection and ear drum perforation by getting troublesome wax professionally removed.

hopi ear candle

Hopi ear candles

There is a misconception that hopi ear candles help to draw wax out of the ears, however, several studies have shown that this is not the case and instead hopi candles leave residue inside the ears, increasing risk of infection. There is also an increased risk of burning the ear with incorrectly performed procedures.
