Don’t Use Cotton Buds!
When it comes to earwax removal, cotton buds just make things worse. If you want to remove ear wax, you can do this via ear syringing or microsuction.
Microsuction is a far better option than syringing. Unlike ear syringing, with microsuction there’s no need to wait until the ear is totally blocked with wax and you can’t hear. At Interhearing, we can remove wax at any stage of build-up, and you don’t need to use any ear-drops.
The Ear Wax Removal Procedure
Microsuction is a quick and safe way to remove ear wax. At Interhearing, microsuction is performed by NHS experienced ear car professionals. 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.
With microsuction, there is no need to use ear drops for weeks prior to treatment, just the night before, and the morning of your appointment. A small, thin probe is directed at the ear wax in the ear canal, and then gentle suction is applied to slowly remove the ear blockage.
Why is ear wax a problem?
Ear wax can cause discomfort, dizziness, pain and hearing loss. Removing it alleviates these issues and brings a greater feeling of wellbeing.
Removal of wax is especially important for users of hearing aids as the earpiece often inhibits the natural migration of wax from the ear. This build-up of wax can reduce the effectiveness of hearing aids.

What is micro-suction?
When it comes to earwax removal, cotton buds just make things worse, and syringing can cause severe discomfort and other side effects such as infections and vertigo.
If you want to remove wax, the safest and most comfortable way to do it is by microsuction. Unlike ear syringing, with microsuction there’s no need to wait until the ear is totally blocked with wax and you won’t need to use ear drops.
Microsuction brings instant relief from the inconvenience and discomfort of blocked ears. Interhearing are the first to offer ear wax removal by micro-suction in clinics across , Cheshire, the West Midlands and Mid-Wales.
Benefits of micro-suction
- Can be used on people where ear syringing is contraindicated (i.e. patients with a history of perforations, infections, ear operations etc.)
- Unlike syringing, ear wax can be removed even if the eardrum is still visible and not fully blocked by wax
- Significantly lower risk of perforation and infection
- Not necessary to use ear drops prior to wax removal
- Commonly used when syringing has not been successful
- No long waiting list
- Speeds up Audiological referrals for patients requiring hearing aids
Here’s what some of our patients have said about their service
I just want to thank Interhearing for clearing my ears so quickly. I couldn’t hear much, it was a real problem. I went to my doctor and he said it would be at least a 4 month wait to be seen at the hospital. After this I found Interhearing who saw me the next day and removed the wax. I highly recommend this service.
I didn’t think anyone would be able to get my ears clear after my doctors tried 3 times with syringing. I was so desperate I searched on the internet. I found Interhearing, and they removed the wax by microsuction in one appointment. No more troubles.
