Quick and Safe Microsuction Ear Wax Cleaning, Performed by NHS experienced ear car professionals. No need for weeks of ear drops before treament.
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. No need to use ear drops for weeks before treatment, just the night before and morning of treatment. 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.
If it is not possible to clear the ear completely at the first sitting, then you can come back to see us for free follow ups until the job is done.
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 blocks the natural migration of wax out of the ear and the build up of wax causes the hearing aid to begin to be ineffective.

When it come to earwax removal cotton buds just makes things worse and syringing can cause severe discomfort and other side effects such as infections and vertigo.
If you want to get the wax out, the safest and most comfortable way to do it is by microsuction. Unlike syringing an ear to remove the wax, with microsuction there is no need to wait until the ear is totally blocked with wax and 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 Reading, Cheshire, the West Midlands and Mid-Wales.

Such a fantastic service, an appointment was arranged within just a few days of my enquiry. The nurse who carried out the procedure was lovely and took time to ensure I was comfortable. My hearing has never been better – best money I’ve ever spent 🙂
Would highly recommend this. I had been “deaf ” for 6 weeks and at my wits end as cannot have syringing method. Discovered interhearing and decided to try it. Best money I ever spent. Over in a flash. Julie was amazingly understanding and professional.i would not hesitate to return if and when needed. Thank you so very much for returning me to normality. ( my family thank you too as I was driving them mad with extra loud TV and constant “pardon” , “what did you say ” etc.)
