Please note, our Wembley clinic has now relocated to 133 Main Street, Osborne Park Western Australia 6017
Earworx Osborne Park clinic is a safe and effective earwax removal service provided by specially trained nurses. Impacted earwax can be painful and uncomfortable for sufferers, but Earworx offers a solution for quickly and professionally removing excess earwax to provide relief from these symptoms.
All Earworx nurses utilise micro-suction technology or fine instruments to remove unwanted earwax without the need for water. This technique, which is the preferred method of Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) specialists, is suitable for people down to the age of four (provided they can sit reasonably still), and is all performed under direct observation. You can access the Earworx service without the need for a referral.

How the Earworx Procedure Works
Micro-suction is a safe, gentle and effective method for removing impacted and excess earwax. We all produce earwax; it is a normal and protective substance produced by the body that is designed to both protect and lubricate your outer ear canal.. However a build-up of wax within the ear can be uncomfortable, and sometimes intervention is required.
At Earworx, our experienced nurses carefully examine the inside of your ears using loupes; magnified glasses with a bright light, to determine whether excess or impacted wax is present. If nurses determine that was removal is clinically indicated, they will use the micro-suction technique to gently remove the earwax.
Micro-suction technology operates like a small vacuum, removing any blockages by gently suctioning away excess earwax. The procedure is completely dry, lowering the risk of infection and making it a safe and comfortable option. The procedure takes only 30 minutes and results in clear and comfortable ears.

Why You Might Need Ear Wax Removal
If you have a normal amount of earwax and your ear’s self cleaning mechanism is working effectively, you may not need the wax removal procedure. 1 in 20 and 1 in 10 children however do suffer from impacted wax within the ears. This can be as a result of genetics, or may arise due to the narrow shape of their ear canal or excess hair. For other people, earwax build up can be caused by using headphones or wearing hearing aids, using earplugs, swimming or diving regularly, or spending a lot of time in dirty and dusty environments.
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.
