Preparing for your wax removal appointment...

Before your wax removal appointment, we recommend that you soften the wax. You should use a single drop of olive oil or Earol® Spray, following the manufacturers’ guidelines. Incorporate this routine into your daily care at least twice a day, ideally for a minimum of five days before your appointment. By following these steps, you can improve the comfort and effectiveness of your wax removal.

What is microsuction?

Microsuction is particularly well suited for people who need to have wax removed from their ears but can’t get them wet. It is also suitable for people with extra sensitive ears or who have had ear surgery.

Although wax in the ear canal is normal, a build-up of excessive wax can cause problems. This is especially true for hearing aid wearers. It can also lead to pain, discomfort and tinnitus.

When to get wax removal?

While some people don’t require earwax removal very often, others produce a lot of earwax quickly. It varies depending on the individual.

At your ear care appointment you will also receive advice on ways to manage your wax. You will be offered the opportunity to have your ears checked regularly to prevent future wax build-up.
