Ear Wax removal – All You Need To Know
Are you struggling to hear? A build-up of excessive ear wax can lead to a blockage.
This can make it hard to hear which can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful.
Temporary hearing loss caused by excess ear wax can be effectively resolved with our advanced micro-suction technique. This method is gentle, safe, and does not require the traditional ear syringing method. Our clinic is staffed by highly trained and specialised healthcare professionals who will ensure your comfort and safety during the procedure.
Before the micro-suction treatment, we conduct a brief consultation to determine your suitability for the procedure.
As part of this consultation, we also offer a complimentary hearing check to assess your hearing ability.
In addition to earwax removal, we provide a range of private ear consultations, including full ear examinations and hearing assessments.

Frequently asked questions
What is ear wax, and why do we have it?
Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is a waxy substance that is naturally produced by the body to help protect and clean the ear canal. It helps to trap dirt, dust, and other foreign particles and prevent them from reaching the eardrum.

Excessive ear wax can cause a range of symptoms, including earache, ear fullness or pressure, ringing in the ears, itching, and difficulty hearing.

Do I need to put ear drops in before?
