Wells offers safe, effective microsuctioning for earwax removal. Skilled professionals use a gentle vacuum to remove wax, relieving pain and hearing loss.
At Wells, we provide safe and effective ear wax removal using microsuctioning. Our skilled healthcare professionals use a specialised microsuction probe to gently and precisely remove excess or impacted earwax. This minimally invasive procedure is ideal for individuals with excessive wax, narrow ear canals, or those unsuitable for other removal methods like ear syringing. Say goodbye to pain and hearing loss caused by earwax build-up with our expert microsuctioning service.
Microsuctioning removes earwax gently and carefully, reducing discomfort. It's quick, effective, and performed by experts for improved hearing and relief from symptoms.
For ear wax removal by microsuction, an initial consultation is required at Wells before the procedure.
If safe and appropriate, the procedure is performed immediately during the consultation appointment. It assesses ear condition, determines suitability, and identifies safety concerns or underlying conditions, ensuring a personalised and safe approach to the procedure.
If the Healthcare Professional deems it inappropriate to proceed with the procedure you will be refunded the procedure cost of £70.
We recommend using an oil based ear drop for one to two weeks prior to your appointment to ensure the wax is soft and easy to remove.

Ear wax removal by microsuction is a procedure that uses a specialised suction device to remove excessive or impacted earwax from the ear canal gently.
When performed by trained professionals, ear wax removal by microsuction is considered a safe method. It is a gentle and controlled process that minimises the risk of complications.
The procedure is generally well-tolerated and does not cause significant pain. Some individuals may experience discomfort or a sensation of suction, but it should not be painful.
The duration of the procedure varies depending on the amount and consistency of the earwax. Typically, it takes a few minutes per ear, but it can vary from person to person. Our appointments for ear wax removal are for 20 minutes.
We recommend using an oil-based ear drop 1-2 weeks before your appointment to ensure the wax is soft and easy to remove.
Ear wax removal by microsuction is considered safe; however, there is a small risk of minor side effects such as temporary dizziness, slight ear discomfort, or a feeling of fullness. These usually subside quickly.
To prevent excessive ear wax build-up, avoid inserting objects like cotton swabs or hairpins into the ear canal, as they can push the wax deeper or cause damage. Maintaining good ear hygiene and regularly visiting a healthcare professional for ear check-ups can help prevent significant wax accumulation.
The frequency of ear wax removal depends on factors such as wax production and susceptibility to blockages. Some people may require more frequent removal, while others may need it less often. Your healthcare professional can advise on the appropriate schedule for you.
