Project Description

What is Microsuction?

Microsuction is a pain free, reliable and quick technique used to safely remove wax from the ears within minutes.

Your ears will first be examined with an otoscope to assess if there is build up of wax. A gentle suction tube is then carefully inserted into the eat canal and used to vacuum, collect and remove the wax under magnification provided from the head loupe.

The procedure is done without water, reducing the risk of infection. It can also be preformed on people who have a perforated eardrum or other complications, unlike traditional methods of removal.

What is Ear Wax?

Earwax is a natural byproduct created by the body forming a protective lining in the ear canal. Its purpose is to clean and protect the ear canal, however an excess can lead to a blockage causing problems.
