Why should earwax build-up removal be done by professionals?

Your hearing health plays an important role in your overall well-being. Hearing well contributes to building and keeping your relations with your loved ones and connects you with the world. An earwax build-up could hinder that and make it difficult to understand and talk well. 

Apart from causing a probable temporary loss of hearing, a stubborn earwax is associated with a number of health issues. Let’s learn more about earwax and why you might need professional help for a removal treatment.

Key points about earwax

  • Formation of ear wax is a natural process and when in excess it washes off itself.
  • Earache or tinnitus are some symptoms of ear wax build-up. 
  • It is more common among older adults.
  • Visiting your doctor regularly for an ear wax removal treatment can keep you risk-free from many medical conditions.

Earwax removal should be a vital routine for your hearing health

A wax build-up is generally caused when your ear makes wax faster than your body can remove. In fact, your headaches, dizziness or even your impaired hearing ability could be because of a physical blockage in your ears due to earwax build-up.   

Many of us use a cotton swab to resolve our wax issues but it also tends to push the wax further into the ear canal that can cause more serious issues.  

Ear Micro Suction is an excellent treatment for wax removal. This non-invasive, quick and hygienic procedure uses a vacuum machine that allows safe and painless removal of wax up to any depth.

Seek professional help instead of a DIY approach

One of the common mistakes we all tend to do is using a DIY approach at home using a cotton swab to remove earwax. Although it cleans up for the time, it also tends to push the wax further into the ear canal causing more serious issues.  

Instead, letting professionals remove your excess earwax is safer.  

Ear Micro Suction is an excellent treatment for wax removal. This non-invasive, quick and hygienic procedure uses a vacuum machine allows painless removal of wax up to any depth.

Why choose micro-suction treatment?

Micro suction is a clinical procedure that uses a medical-grade microscope for magnification and a micro-suction machine to remove stubborn wax deep from the ear canal. This procedure is very safe and relatively pain-free. 

Most of the doctors performing this procedure are ENT specialists or GPs with specialised training in micro-suction treatments.   

There are many added benefits of a micro-suction treatment than any other conventional form of earwax removal treatment. 

Benefits of micro-suction earwax removal treatment

  • Micro-suction treatment eliminates the use of cleaning solutions and gels that can cause an infection or potential damage to your eardrum. 
  • The process is very hygienic, quick and safe. 
  • The result of a micro-suction treatment gives instant results and usually takes only one appointment for the best results.
  • Other treatments need high skills on the part of the doctor and the use of invasive instruments has potential risks for structural damage to your ears.
