About Barnet Ear Care
Barnet Ear Care was started by our Prescribing Pharmacist after completing his diploma in prescribing for infectious diseases of the ear, he went on to train at the prestigious Charing Cross Hospital in Ear Microsuction under the supervision of Consultant Ear Clinicians.
Microsuction is an ear cleaning technique using either a binocular microscope or a light loupe and suction device. It is the gold standard technique for ear cleaning. More safe and effective than water syringing and ear candling.
How do I know if I need ear Microsuction?
Ear Microsuction is the process of using a small suction tool to remove excess earwax from your ear canal. If you have been experiencing any of the following symptoms, it could be time to schedule an appointment with our Barnet Ear Care Clinic:
–Ear aches and pain
–Dizziness and difficulty hearing
–Loss of balance or vertigo
–A feeling that something is stuck in your ear
–A feeling that there is fluid in your ear
How many times can you have ear microsuction?
Ear microsuction is a procedure that can be performed multiple times. However, it is highly dependent on the cause of your earwax buildup and how long you have been experiencing symptoms.
If your ears are impacted with wax and require more than one treatment, it may be more effective to schedule an appointment with Barnet Ear Care which can perform the procedure with a small surgical microscope.
What should you not do after Ear Microsuction?
After your ear microsuction appointment, there are a few things you should avoid doing. First, don’t go swimming or shower for 24 hours after your treatment. This will help ensure that your ears are properly sealed so fluid doesn’t enter and re-infect them.
You should also avoid blowing your nose, sneezing, or swallowing until the next day.
Finally, it’s important that you take care of your ears during this time. You can use warm compresses to help loosen any wax that hasn’t been removed by the doctor’s instrumentation.
