How the Earworx Procedure Works
From the moment you enter our Joondalup clinic, you’ll be greeted by a warm and caring team who will step you through the process. You will complete a questionnaire in the waiting room then will be invited into the Earworx clinic room. The first step will involve working through your forms and allowing you time to ask questions, then your ears will be carefully examined to determine whether any excess wax is present and whether wax removal is clinically indicated.
If wax removal is necessary, your nurse will don a pair of ‘loupes’ to ensure direct observation is maintained during the wax removal procedure, enhancing safety. A tiny vacuum-like contraption or fine instruments will be used to very gently remove any excess wax. The process is entirely safe, effective and complete in under half an hour.
Why You Might Need Earwax Removal
Earwax is completely normal, and actually plays an important role in your ears’ health. Our ears actually have their own self-cleaning mechanism which removes wax from the ear in order to maintain normal ear wax levels. On occasion, certain lifestyle factors or genetic pre-dispositions can result in a build-up of wax.
If this happens, you may notice a feeling of blockage, discomfort and itching within your ear, in addition to potential dizziness and hearing loss. These symptoms can often worsen over time, so it’s worth popping into your Joondalup Earworx clinic to seek professional assessment as soon as possible.
Ear wax is removed for a flat rate of $120 in Joondalup, and $95 concession for veterans, pensioners, health care card holders and children under 18 years Australia wide. If a second appointment is required this will be complimentary. This fee is paid at the time of the appointment via debit / credit card. This fee is partly rebatable through St Lukes Health or Health Care Insurance, depending on your level of cover. Please contact St Lukes or your Health Care Insurance provider directly to ascertain the amount of your health care fund rebate. If no wax is found in your ears at the time of your appointment, a reduced $60 rate applies.
