Ear Wax Removal & Management
Our trained professionals will remove the build-up of ear wax.
Ear wax build-up is caused by moisture, skin particles, and dust in the ear canal. A small amount of ear wax is natural, and its production varies among individuals. Most prone to build-up are individuals with narrow ear canals or hearing aid users. Excessive build-up can result in symptoms like tinnitus, mild hearing loss, and occasional ear discomfort.
Our Audiologists utilise specialised ear wax removal equipment designed to effectively and comfortably eliminate the build-up of wax via microsuction. Unlike methods that involve flushing or irrigating the ear canal with water (which we strongly advise against), our procedure gently draws out the wax and ensures a hassle-free and painless experience for our clients.
In addition, we highly recommend using ear drops containing a peroxide compound (such as Ear Clear)a few days prior your appointment as they help to facilitate the wax extraction process by softening and loosening the wax build-up.
We have found that using drops such as Waxsol or Cerumol can sometimes make the removal more challenging.
Therefore, opting for ear drops with a peroxide compound is the preferred choice to ensure optimal results during your ear wax removal procedure.

Frequently asked questions.
You don’t need a referral to book a wax removal appointment.
For wax removals, General Practitioner can put you on a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan (also known as an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Plan) which entitles you to five allied health appointments per year, partially subsidised by Medicare.
Generally, we only recommend this if you need ear wax removed more than once a year.
We are Medicare registered Audiologists that can provide this service.
