Ear Clean Clinic is the first dedicated microsuction ear wax removal clinic in the Illawarra. Microsuction is an ear cleaning technique using a microscope and suction device. It is the same technique used by Ear, Nose and Throat specialists and is superior to other methods such as water syringing (higher risks of ear drum trauma and ear infections) and ear candling (limited evidence on effectiveness). Microsuction is safer, gentler, more effective, and does not require water or pre-visit ear wax softeners.
