Ear wax is an important part of a normal functioning ear – the ear wax (called cerumen) is designed to trap dirt and dust, and is supposed to migrate out of the ear canal to ‘self-clean’ the ear. As many of our patients know, this self-cleaning mechanism doesn’t always work as well as we’d like it too!
Blackburn Clinic now offers safer and cleaner removal of ear wax build-up, using a state-of-the-art micro-suction machine. CLICK THE PHOTO ABOVE for more information.
