Ear Wax Removal Melbourne

Ears basically like to be left alone when it comes to keeping them clean, but some people can be bothered by the presence of ear wax, known as cerumen.

Keeping your ears clean

Ear wax is perfectly normal and supports the ears to self-clean, so there is really no need to clean your ears yourself.

We recommend you do not use cotton buds, hairpins etc. to get ear wax out, as this may cause damage or push the wax further in.  If ear wax is causing itchy ears, try not to scratch and instead, book an appointment for our qualified audiologists to assess your ear canals and offer treatment options.

Hearing aid wearers are more prone to having ear wax build up, and for many of the audiological tests and procedures it is important to have ear canals free of wax.

If you require wax to be removed, we offer a safe and professional option known as micro suction.

Is Ear Wax Removal Safe?

Micro-suction is the safe, gentle way to remove ear wax.

The ear canal is being observed throughout the process, making it an exceptionally safe procedure and a far more comfortable process than traditional water irrigation.

At True Hearing, our ear wax removal process starts with a general assessment of your ear canal health. Our experienced clinicians will place a small metal funnel at the entrance to your ear and will examine your ear canal with a specialised microscope as you relax comfortably in a chair.

Wax is removed gently using a small suction tool attached to a low-pressure suction machine that works like a gentle vacuum cleaner. Ear micro-suction can be noisier than expected and occasionally slight discomfort or mild dizziness may be experienced for a few seconds.

What to expect from professional ear wax removal?

You should expect instant relief after any wax is removed, but if you still have a sensation of blockage in your ears, we can provide a full audiological assessment to examine other possible causes of this feeling.

In most cases wax will be completely removed during the appointment; however, there are instances where this is not possible.  If wax has adhered to hair and/or skin within the ear canal or perhaps has been present for some time and has accumulated in layers that are quite deep and hard, then subsequent treatments may be required.

If you require wax to be removed, we offer a safe and professional option known as micro suction. This is the only method of removal endorsed by our professional body.
