What to expect on the day

We offer a state of the art microsuction technique. There are a few other techniques but we believe this to be the most effective and also the least invasive and the safest way. Your comfort will always be our highest priority.

Your appointment

Prior to the appointment we will ask you to use a product called ‘Earol’. This will help to soften any wax in the ear canal making it easier to extract. This is an oil spray that is easily applied directly into the ear. You can obtain it from your local chemist.

On the day we will arrive at the allocated appointment time. We can perform the procedure wherever you feel most comfortable but will need to have you sitting and accessible with a small surface we can use. We find a kitchen or dining room chair to work the best but can work around your needs.

Once the equipment is set up we will take some medical history from you and then we will take a photo and video of the inside of your ear for reference. We will then perform the procedure. You will experience some noise from the suction device. There should be no pain throughout but occasionally there might be a slight tenderness if the wax is more solid. We will be guided by you and take regular breaks if necessary.

Once the wax is removed will will take another image and or video of the ear canal. You are welcome to see these images and we can provide you with copies if you desire. We will then store these on our device under your details.

Lastly we will perform a free of charge hearing assessment and then advise any further steps.

Important, please note:

If you have an ear infection ear wax removal wont be suitable for you but some of the symptoms can be the same. Please see your GP if you think there may be an infection.
