How The Earworx Procedure Works
Earworx clinics gently remove earwax using microsuction, a safe and effective method that is the preferred treatment option of Ear Nose and Throat specialists around Australia. This dry technique uses no water and is pain-free for the patient. It is also very effective, so you won’t have to come back multiple times for subsequent removals.
When you visit the Chermside clinic, Julie will carefully examine your ear canal using ‘loupes’, or binocular glasses with a bright light attached. These give her greater visibility of your ears to keep your ear canal and ear drums safe during the procedure. If it is determined that there is a build-up of earwax, Julie will begin the micro-suction process, which extracts the impacted earwax through a suction tubing a bit like a vacuum. The process is repeated on both ears as necessary. It usually takes no longer than half an hour and is painless and completely safe.
How Do I Know If I Have Impacted Earwax?
Symptoms of excess earwax include your ears feeling blocked, itchiness or pain in the ear, tinnitus, and loss of hearing. It can be uncomfortable and even debilitating for patients. All of us have wax in our ears, which is important to keep them healthy by lubricating the ear canal and preventing infection. However, you can over-produce wax through activities such as swimming or diving, working in dirty and dusty environments, or wearing hearing aids or earphones for extended periods of time. It can also be a genetic predisposition.
Please don’t try to remove excess wax yourself – at home methods can be dangerous and make your symptoms worse. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, book an appointment with us. If no wax is found in your ears at the time of your appointment, a reduced $60 rate applies.
