Ear wax is a completely natural substance, which we all produce. The quantity of earwax produced varies from person to person. For some, the wax does not come out of the ear and forms a blockage or plug which may need removing.
Symptoms of Excess Ear Wax
- Impaired hearing
- Plugged or full sensation
- Ringing in the ear
Microsuction Wax Removal
During her career, Lisa became increasingly aware of the difficulties clients had in getting excess ear wax removed, with many people waiting weeks. Lisa feels offering a microsuction wax removal service gives individuals the opportunity of resolving their excess wax immediately!
Microsuction is the preferred method of wax removal by medical staff. The procedure is the safest and most effective way to remove excess ear wax. In line with current guidance, we request that you use olive oil / drops for 3 days prior to treatment. In most cases the wax can be removed safely within minutes.
Please note that if we find there is no build-up of wax or there is an infection present which prevents the procedure going ahead, there is a minimum consultation fee of £50*. So if you are not sure that the problem is indeed a build-up of wax, booking a Wax Check appointment can be useful.
The Wax Check appointment will allow your ear canals to be examined to establish if you would benefit from a Wax Removal Appointment, which would be booked for a for a later date. The Wax Check is free but will be subject to the temporary Peace of Mind surcharge of £20.
* Prices correct as at 1/10/19. There is also a temporary Peace of Mind Surcharge of £20 for each face to face appointment.
