Taking care of your hearing is vital! We all want to live life to the fullest and that is why good ear & hearing health is important to people of all ages. There are many factors that can affect our ear health including age, the misuse of earbuds, constant exposure to very loud noises and of course the build-up of wax. If our ear health is compromised then our ability to hear deteriorates, this often causes people to be socially withdrawn. If you are concerned about your hearing health or you are looking for earwax removal in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire then please contact us, we can help.
In the United Kingdom, it is estimated that around 3.9% of the population require management of ear wax each year with many people having to wait 12 to 16 weeks to get treatment. These statistics are astonishing and due to the lack of treatments available with the NHS, many people simply go on living their lives with this condition, unaware that they can get treated at their local pharmacy. Here at 3Q Pharmacy, we want to help our customers with conditions such as this and that is why we are working hard to provide easy and accessible Earwax Removal in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire
Diagnosis & Treatment
Thanks to modern technology, treatments and procedures we can help to quickly diagnose ear & hearing conditions. Infections, as well as excessive & compacted wax, can be identified & treated quickly & painlessly.
Each appointment will take roughly 30 minutes. One of our highly trained clinicians will carry out the test. Once they have removed some wax the hearing screening will be performed. During the examination, high definition images and videos will be taken. This will identify any hearing issues and whether or not you may require further treatment from specialist doctors. In most cases, however, the initial problem is simply the presence of excessive wax. If this is the case, a fast & painless microsuction procedure can be performed to clear the ear of any debris or built-up wax. This procedure could immediately improve hearing capabilities.
Ear Microsuction is the safest and most effective way to remove earwax. It works by inserting a low-pressure suction probe into the ear. The probe will be controlled by one of our trained clinicians who will be wearing a microscope that will allow them to look clearly into the ear canal to remove the wax.
This procedure is painless and does not involve water being squirted into your ear canal as syringing does. It is a simple and clean procedure. There will be a free follow-up/aftercare appointment if necessary, this will determine if you need to come back on a 3 or 6 monthly interval.
Why is microsuction better?
Compared to traditional forms of earwax removal microsuction is:
- – Safer
- – Quicker
- – Cleaner and neater
- – Generally better tolerated, with fewer side effects
- – More effective and likely to need only one appointment
- – Doesn’t need weeks of waiting for drops to soften the wax
- – Microsuction may still be possible for people who struggle to use oil prior to treatment
