Ear Wax Removal Service

Clearer Hearing, Safer Removal: Experience hassle-free earwax removal with our expert Microsuction service.

Are you experiencing hearing problems due to excess earwax? Our professional Ear Wax Microsuction service can help you regain clear hearing safely and easily.

What is Microsuction?

Microsuction is a gentle and effective method for removing excess earwax. Our friendly pharmacists can perform this service right in our pharmacy.

Why Choose Microsuction Over Ear Syringing?

Microsuction is a safer option compared to ear syringing, which involves pushing water through the ear canal and can sometimes lead to complications like ear infections or perforations. We prioritise your safety and well-being, which is why we do not offer ear syringing.

What to Expect During Your Wax Removal Appointment

  • Your appointment will last approximately 20 minutes.
  • Our pharmacist will start by asking you a few questions about your ear health.
  • Using an otoscope (a magnifier with a light), we will carefully examine your ear canals and ear drums.
  • We'll explain the procedure, show you the equipment, and ask for your consent.
  • If you're comfortable proceeding, our clinician will gently remove the excess wax using a suction tube.
  • After the procedure, we'll check the overall health of your ears.
  • In case we are unable to remove all the wax, we'll guide you on the next steps without any additional charges.

Preparing for Your Appointment

To make the procedure more comfortable and effective, it's essential to soften the wax beforehand. We recommend using olive oil in your ear two to three times a day for at least five days before your appointment. Apply enough oil until it overflows and leave it in for at least five minutes. This will make the wax easier to remove.
