Earwell® is a corrective treatment for infants with ear deformities. It is a noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure that utilizes the malleability of newly formed cartilage to externally reshape the ear. It is over 90% effective, and the device can be installed on an outpatient basis in an office setting.
Acadian Skin Care & Laser Center is the only provider in Lafayette that can perform this procedure! This revolutionary device corrects infant ear deformities without surgical intervention. Since ear deformities are one of the more common referrals we receive from pediatricians, there’s now a simple, fast, ad non-traumatic solution. Up until this point, the only viable option for a patient with an ear deformity had been an invasive procedure that was costly to the parent and often difficult for the child.
EarWell® introduces a non-surgical, non-invasive, and painless procedure that corrects infant ear deformities regardless of type or severity. It properly and permanently reshapes the ear during the narrow time window when circulating maternal estrogens remain at high levels in the child. Best results are achieved when EarWell® therapy is initiated during the first three weeks of life.
The incidence of ear deformities is substantially higher than previously thought. Several published studies indicate that the frequency exceeds 15% of all newborns and may be as high as 25%. Most ears do not significantly self-correct. Documentation now suggests that 70% of the ears deformed at infancy either stay the same or get worse. EarWell® not only eliminates the prospect of a surgical option, but the procedure is typically covered by most insurance, eliminating most out-of-pocket expenses.
