Unlike ear syringing and ear irrigation, it is safe for people who have a perforated eardrum, previous infections or an ear blockage. The reason is that microsuction safely removes the wax using pinpoint accuracy, rather than pushing anything into the eardrum.

Ear Wax Removal – Microsuction and Ear Syringing
Ear microsuction is the most effective and safest form of earwax removal as it avoids touching the sensitive area around the ear canal and evades contact with the eardrum. A low-pressure suction probe is used to gently and safely remove earwax. This technique of ear wax removal does not use high-pressure water unlike ‘syringing’, therefore allowing microsuction to be the safest, fastest and cleanest method of choice.
Ear wax removal by microsuction is the safest most effective method for the removal of ear wax from ear canals. due to the nature of the suction, ear wax can be removed from the ear, irrespective of whether it is soft or hard. This differs from other methods such as syringing and water irrigation where the wax has to be treated beforehand with drops to encourage a softer consistency.
Earwax is naturally occurring and serves an important purpose. On occasion, earwax can build in the ear canal and can cause hearing loss or discomfort. For many people, microsuction offers a quick and long-lasting solution to hearing loss. Years of excess wax build-up can be gently removed – providing an immediate improvement to their quality of life. It helps to protect and clean the inside of the ear by creating a natural protective layer. Other wax removal treatments such as syringing often completely clear the canal of all wax, leaving no protective layer inside the ear. Microsuction is a much more controlled treatment that allows your audiologist to carefully remove excess wax whilst preserving a necessary level of protection.
