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.
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.
