Build up of wax in the ear?

We now offer micro suction earwax removal service.

It's a procedure where a trained clinician removes ear wax using a compact suction device while looking into your ear.

They’ll look into the ear with a binocular head-piece which offers a clear view of the ear canal, making it easier to get rid of the ear wax with low-pressure suction.

This treatment has become increasingly popular over the years as it is safe and pain-free for the patient.
Many people also find it a lot more comfortable than ear syringing.

If you want further information please call us on 02082446969 or pop in to see us in the pharmacy.

What is ear wax?

Formed in the outer ear canal, the natural wax our ears produce forms a defensive layer in the ear canal. As it is produced it moves slowly from the outer ear canal to the opening of the ear. 

Earwax has several uses: protecting the ear canal against dust, dirt, bacteria, and foreign bodies. It also helps to fight infection and prevents dry or itchy ears by moisturising the skin inside your ear.
