Wax Removal

Earwax, medically known as cerumen, is a natural byproduct created by the body forming a protective lining in the ear canal. The oily substance is produced by glands within the ear canal, providing protection from dust and bacteria. It is useful in small quantities, helping to clean and lubricate the ear canal, however an excess can lead to a blockage causing problems.
  • A narrow/bendy ear canal.
  • Regular wear of hearing aids/ear plugs as wax doesn't have a chance to migrate out of the ear canal and may be pushed further down.
  • Hair inside the canal mixing with the wax and trapping it.
  • Hyperactive glands on the ear canal lining over producing wax.
  • Tinnitus- an internal noise only heard by yourself such as a ringing/buzzing sound.
  • Earache.
  • A feeling of fullness inside the ears.
  • Occlusion effect- being able to hear internal sounds much louder e.g. own pulse, chewing hearing loss- wax restricts the sound waves reaching the eardrum causing temporary hearing loss.
  • Irritation/dryness.
  • Vertigo- a sensation of spinning and dizziness.

Microsuction is an efficient, reliable and quick technique used to safely remove wax from the ears.

Your ears will first be examined with an otoscope to assess if there is a build up of wax. A gentle suction tube is carefully inserted into the ear canal and used to vacuum, collect and remove the wax under magnification provided from a head loupe. A bright light and ear tip will be used to enhance the view of the inside of the ear canal. The process can be noisy but should not cause any pain. It will take an average of 15-20 minutes to perform, however depending on the amount, depth and type of wax the timings may vary. It is advisable to use an olive oil spray in advance of your appointment to help soften the wax.

The procedure is done without water, reducing the risk of infection. It can also be performed on people who have a perforated eardrum or other complications, unlike traditional methods of wax removal.

Laser Hair Removal

1Which machine is used?
CynoSure Elite Plus, uses both Alexandrite and ND Yag Laser heads which allows treatment all skin types, making this an extremely versatile treatment. The lasers are high-powered, dual wavelength systems that deliver energy faster for faster results. The CynoSure Elite Plus is the gold standard for hair removal.
2What happens at the sessions?
The first sessions consists of a consultation and patch test, where the treatment is discussed and to determine suitability. A patch test is also included to confirm suitability of the skin for treatment, followed by the first treatment.
3How many sessions will I need?
Each individual will require different treatment programmes. Six to eight sessions are usually performed dependent on the area around four to six weeks apart.
4Why are multiple treatments needed?
Hair naturally grows in different stages at the same time, so when an area is treated only a percentage of hair follicles will be treated. Therefore, to effectively reduce your unwanted hair, multiple treatments are necessary.
5How long does the treatment last?
Treatments can take from just 5-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
6Who is suitable for laser hair removal?

The laser technology we use is suitable for all skin types, on men and women and on many conditions.

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Dark skin
  • Light skin
  • Excess hair
  • Face / body hair removal
7Does laser hair removal hurt?
Treatments are virtually painless and will vary patient to patient. Patients describe a range of sensations during treatment from tingling to the snapping of a rubber band. light redness or localised swelling can occasionally occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment. NOTE: Laser hair removal is not suitable for people with open cuts or contagious skin complaints. May not be suitable for women who are pregnant. Clients should shave, not wax, the area and all fake tan must be removed 24-hours prior to treatment.
8What type of results can i expect?
You can expect to see a gradual decrease in the hair thickness and the amount of hair present in the areas treated. In addition, you may also see a decrease in stubble, rashes and ingrown hairs!
9 How many laser hair removal treatments will i need?
There are a number of factors that can affect the success of hair removal treatment. However, after each session there will usually be a noticeable, permanent reduction in the number of hairs that regrow in the treatment area. Typically, you will need between six and eight sessions.
10How successful is it?
The average person will see an approximate 50% reduction in hair growth after three laser hair removal treatments and up to an 80% lasting reduction after six to eight treatments. However, results vary between individuals. After you have completed a series of six to eight treatments any remaining hair will usually be finer in texture and lighter in colour. Most patients will then require one or two maintenance treatments per year.
11Is laser hair removal safe?
Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and best researched laser treatments. The Soprano ICE Platinum laser is safe, successful and approved by the FDA.
12 Will the hair ever grow back following laser treatment?
The short answer is no. Once we damaged the hair follicle, it cannot grow new hair. However, there will inevitably be a few hair follicles that manage to escape the laser during each treatment. We suggest periodic, occasional maintenance treatments for optimal long-lasting results.


Botox can be used on many areas of the face and body and has over 800 medical uses. Here at Hush Aesthetic Clinic we use Botox to smooth out fine lines and wrinkle, to prevent teeth grinding and for excessive sweating often medically called hyperhidrosis- ask one of our expert practitioners about the right treatments for you.
Botox is an excellent treatment for fine lines and wrinkles that are associated with movement in that face and neck (dynamic lines). However when a wrinkle is more deeply ingrained it cannot be erased with a single treatment of Botox. For deeper lines there are other treatment options such as dermal fillers which may be a better option. Other treatments to improve the quality of the skin such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion and Derma roller may provide further benefit.
It makes sense that Botox does prevent wrinkle formation if it is started before fixed wrinkles establish. However there is a careful balance when deciding to treat younger patients – premature treatment can make someone look older rather than the more youthful look desired. Whether or not treatment is appropriate is always decided on an individual patient basis.
Patients normally see the results from their Botox between 4 days and 2 weeks and some patients may require a little top up for optimum results in days 10-14.

Dermal Fillers

Some fillers also encourage your skin to produce collagen. We use these on the face and hands, but are not reversible. All of our fillers are FDA approved and discussed fully with you prior to any treatment.
Hyaluronic acid fillers work by attracting water from the surrounding tissues, helping the skin to retain moisture which adds plumpness, smooths lines and restores volume. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used almost anywhere on the body, including the face, nose, lips, neck, décolletage and hands. These fillers are fully reversible and can be easily removed if required. At Health & Aesthetics we use only the safest and highest quality hyaluronic acid fillers which are FDA approved.
