Earwax, also known by the medical term ‘cerumen’ is a yellowish waxy substance secreted in the ear canal. It protects the skin of the human ear canal, assists in cleaning and lubrication, and also provides some protection from bacteria, fungi, insects and water.
Earwax doesn’t usually cause problems, but if too much earwax is produced it can lead to a blocked and painful ear or hearing loss. Earwax can also affect the operation of hearing aids, causing them to whistle, produce feedback noises and reduce the quality of sound.
Using a microscope headset and a finely calibrated suction device, we are able to safely remove excess wax without the introduction of any materials or liquids. A typical appointment to remove wax from both ears should take no longer than 20 minutes.
Our wax removal clinic in Market Harborough is conducted at Archway Health Hub, that provides a safe and relaxed atmosphere for your wax removal treatment. Archway Health Hub is located on Lubenham Hill in Market Harborough, for full details on how to find us click here.
Appointments for microsuction wax removal are charged at £50.00 for one ear or £80.00 for both ears. Wax removal Home Visits are available at a charge of £120.
