Ear Microsuction

Earwax serves as a natural cleanser for the ears, eliminating dirt, debris, and dead skin cells from the ear canal.

It is a vital component for maintaining good ear health, as recent studies have revealed its antifungal and antibacterial properties, contributing to infection prevention.

Despite its benefits, an accumulation of earwax can occur, leading to hardened blockages in the ear canal. This buildup may result in issues such as temporary hearing loss, vertigo, earaches, and ear infections.

For individuals suspecting a blockage due to wax buildup, microsuction removal emerges as the safest and most effective solution. Regent Pharmacy in Gravesend provides a professional ear wax removal service and ear health check.

Microsuction earwax removal is widely recognised as the gentlest and safest method. During the procedure, an ear specialist utilizes a small suction device to delicately remove excess earwax. A binocular microscope enhances visibility, ensuring a clear view of the ear canal for a secure and low-pressure suction removal.

Following the procedure, symptoms such as hearing loss should swiftly alleviate, although some individuals may experience temporary dizziness, which typically resolves as the ears adjust.

Recognising signs indicating the need for earwax removal is crucial. Sudden hearing loss without an apparent cause may be attributed to a blockage of hardened earwax. Additionally, other symptoms of excessive earwax include:

  • Sounds appearing muffled

  • Ear discomfort

  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)

  • Dizziness or vertigo

  • Itching or drainage from the ear

If you encounter any of these symptoms, seeking professional earwax removal can help maintain optimal ear health and prevent further complications.
