How the Earworx Procedure Works
Earworx uses micro-suction technology to safely and quickly remove excess earwax. Earwax is a normal and natural substance producedhealthy ears, but a build up of earwax can be uncomfortable and result in hearing loss, tinnitus, dizziness, itching and pain.
The procedure at Earworx only takes 30 minutes and results in the removal of earwax from the ear. Our experienced registered nurses will begin by thoroughly examining your ears to determine the need for the micro-suction procedure. If it is decided that you require earwax removal, our nurse will don a pair of loupes to allow them to visualise your entire ear canal.
The micro-suction technology operates like a small vacuum, gently removing any blockages and excess earwax via gentle suction. The procedure is completely dry, preventing the risk of infection and enhancing safety for those with perforated ear drums.

Why You Might Need Ear Wax Removal
Not everyone will suffer from impacted or excessive earwax, but there are some factors that make you more susceptible. These include engaging regularly in activities such as swimming or diving, working in dirty and dusty environments, wearing headphones or a hearing aid or using cotton buds in your ears. You can also be predisposed to excess wax through genetics or the shape of your ear canals.
