How the Earworx Procedure Works
While a normal amount of earwax in our ears is necessary for ear health, an excess of earwax can result in uncomfortable and painful symptoms, including a feeling of being blocked up, itchy, or dizzy, with some associated loss of hearing and ringing in the ears.
The nurses at Earworx clinics are specially trained in ear health and wax removal, with a particular emphasis on safety. This safety is enhanced by the maintenance of direct vision into the ear canal during the entire procedure. Our team uses ‘loupes’ for this purpose; a bright light with magnification. The Earworx procedure provides quick and effective relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of impacted earwax.
When you visit an Earworx clinic, your nurse will begin by carefully examining your ears to determine the extent of your earwax blockage. If it is determined that wax removal is clinically indicated, our nurse will use micro-suction and curettage to remove any excess and impacted earwax.
Micro-suction technology operates like a small vacuum. Earwax is gently suctioned out of the ear, with no need to touch the canal wall or eardrum. Whilst you will hear the noise of the suction, the procedure itself is gentle and quick, particularly if your wax is well softened prior (we recommend plain olive oil or ‘Ear Clear’ from the chemist for this purpose).

Why You Might Need Ear Wax Removal
Everyone produces earwax; it is a normal and healthy bodily substance. If you notice uncomfortable symptoms in your ears, however, such as a feeling of blockage, itching, fullness and hearing loss, you may be suffering from excess earwax. A normal, healthy ear ‘self-cleans’; the wax is carried out of the ear in a ‘conveyor belt’ motion and can simply be wiped away as it emerges from the ear. But this self-cleaning mechanism doesn’t always work!
Excess or impacted earwax can be caused by cold water swimming or diving (due to narrowing of the bony section of the ear canals), wearing earphones, hearing aids or earplugs, spending a lot of time in dusty environments, or using cotton buds or other implements to try to clean the ear regularly. Some people are naturally more susceptible to excess or impacted earwax also through genetics or the shape of their ear canals. If this is you, seek professional advice from Earworx today!
The earwax removal procedure is completed for a flat rate of $120 in Como, and $95 concession for veterans, pensioners and health care card holders Australia wide. If a second appointment is required, this will be performed at no charge. The fee is paid at the time of the appointment via debit or credit card. If no wax is found in your ears at the time of your appointment, a 50% reduced rate applies.
