How the Earworx Procedure Works
When you visit an Earworx clinic, you will experience the best in professional earwax removal. Our experienced staff begin by using loupes to visualise your ear canal and determine if an earwax extraction is necessary for you.
If you require earwax removal, our nurse will then use the micro-suction technique to gently remove excess and impacted earwax from your ears. This method operates like a vacuum to suck wax away, clearing the ear of excess wax. There is no water involved, making it the safest option available for earwax removal.
The procedure takes only 30 minutes and is completely painless for the patient.

Why You Might Need Ear Wax Removal
Everyone produces earwax, and most of the time this substance naturally works its way out of the ear without causing problems. However, sometimes your earwax can become hard and impacted inside the ear, or you can produce too much earwax, leaving your ears feeling blocked.
Impacted and excess earwax can be very uncomfortable and painful. Some of the common symptoms of excess earwax include itching, ringing in the ears, loss of hearing, dizziness and vertigo. If you have a sore, blocked feeling in your ears, you should have them examined by an Earworx professional.
You can suffer from excess and impacted earwax if you swim or dive often, wear headphones or a hearing aid, or spend a lot of time in dirty and dusty environments. Using cotton buds to try to clean the ear can also impact your earwax, pushing wax deeper and potentially causing damage to the eardrum.
If you are suffering from impacted earwax, it could also be because you are genetically predisposed to producing more wax than other people. Some people can have narrow ear canals, which makes it more difficult for the wax to naturally exit the ear.
Our qualified registered nurses use dry and effective micro suction to gently remove ear wax under direct observation. Our rates are $145 per session or $115 if you are a Pensioner, Veteran, Health Care Card Holder, Child or Full Time Student. A reduced rate applies of $60 if no wax is found at all clinics. If a second appointment is necessary this appointment will be complimentary at all clinics. Please note we are a provider for St Lukes Health and Health Care Insurance (HCI).
We see children down to the age of 4 years. A discussion with Earworx staff is recommended prior to booking. For safety reasons children need to be able to follow direction and keep reasonably still.
