A build up of ear wax can be quite common. In fact, ten per cent of children and one in 20 adults will suffer from excessive ear wax throughout their life. While some people may choose to clean out their own ears, a professional may be required to remove excessive ear wax, which can lead to uncomfortable symptoms.
The professional nurses at Earworx use a range of expert curettage and micro-suction techniques for a safe and easy procedure with perfect results.

How the Earworx Procedure Works
At Earworx, our ear extraction procedures focus on the excess build up of wax within the ear canal.
Our friendly nurse Catherine will use ‘loupes’; a bright light with magnification; to examine your ear canals and determine whether wax removal is clinically indicated.
Catherine will then use very gentle micro-suction and curettage techniques to relieve your ears of any built up wax. Our procedure is proven to be safe and time efficient, which allows you to get onto doing the things you love most in just a short matter of time.
Why You Might Need Ear Wax Removal
Symptoms of an ear blocked with wax can be uncomfortable and distracting. If you work in a job with lots of dust, use earplugs or listen to music through headphones, or have a hereditary disposition to wax build up, you may be more prone to wax build up. Our services can provide relief from symptoms of wax build up such as hearing loss, a feeling of fullness and even water becoming trapped in the ear following swimming or bathing.
Our services are highly affordable, with a flat rate of just $120. Our Wyong clinic caters for all, including a special rate of $95for concession card holders, veterans, pensioners and health care card holders.
If you require a second appointment, we don’t charge you. Also, depending on what level of health care cover you have, some of your fees may be rebatable through private health funds, ‘St Lukes Health’ and ‘Health Care Insurance’.
Additionally, if our experienced team are unable to find any built up wax in your ears, we offer a reduced rate of up to 50 per cent of the booking fee.
