Frequently Asked Questions

Ear wax removal in itself shouldn’t be painful, at most the ear wax can become so impacted that the procedure can be uncomfortable. There are a number of different methods for the removal of earwax, meaning we can usually find the one that best suits your ear’s situation. After the procedure we have a large amount of reading materials that can assist in maintaining your ear health with appropriate aftercare.

Yes, there are 4 different types of earwax removal that we offer : Microsuction, Endoscopic Microsuction, Water Syringing (Irrigation) and Manual Removal.

Some methods are more appropriate for different types of clients, this heavily depends on their ear health, past medical history or age. Methods such as microsuction are perfect for clients that have suffered from perferation of the ear or ear infections in the past. Whilst irrigation may feel more comfortable for some clients with near perfect ear health, and manual removal is good for large clumps of earwax that don’t want to budge despite oiling.

We give all all of our earwax removal appointments a 30 minute window to allow for thorough removal of earwax and to discuss any other details and fill in our consent form.

The microsuction earwax removal method includes using a small thin medical suction tube that is used alongside a microscope to gently remove earwax out of the ear canal. It is a modernised earwax removal technique that is heavily preferred by a large amount of patients. Due to its’ safety it it possible to use this earwax removal technique on individuals that have previously suffered from perferated eardrums, infections or just generally have weak inner ear skin lining. The earwax removal method does produce a bit of sound during the procedure, and a bit of a cold sensation can be felt from the metal tools. Overall a vast majority of clients say they were very happy with how hassle-free microsuction is, additionally it is a DRY procedure, meaning that as soon as the wax is taken out the client can be on their way.

Endoscopic microsuction is extremely similar to the normal microsuction procedure above. It is quickly becoming the most popular method of earwax removal due to its’ TV streaming capabilities, giving a clear view of the procedure to the client. An endoscope (camera) is generally used to look at insides of a person’s body. Our specialist can attach this to an iPod (using “iCLEARscope®” developed by CLEARWAX). The battery inside the barrel held by our Audiologist “Waxbusters” produces a very bright, clear light through the endoscope – giving a highly detailed view of the patient’s entire ear canal and eardrum – making it easier and safer to perform efficient wax removal. Occasionally, we can stream the procedure live onto Apple TV. The patient sits in a very comfortable chair, with his/her head slightly tilted to allow easy access to the ear being cleared. As the specialist can see every detail, using the iPod, it makes it a much more efficient, safer and generally, more comfortable procedure than water irrigation.

The water syringing/irrigation method of earwax removal uses a weak stream of body-temperature water to flush out earwax stuck to the patient’s ear canal walls. The water breaks down earwax and allows it to flow out into a container held just below the ear called a “noots tank” Many clients favour this method because of it’s gentle and calming water usage. Despite the comfort this removal method provides it is important to note that this form of removal is not appropriate for clients that have had previous or existing issues with their ear health – This includes but is not limited to : Suffering from vertigo, perferated eardrums, infection of the eardrums (resulting in discharge or mucus in the ear canal) and any ear surgery will require an overview by our audiologist to determine whether the procedure is safe for the individual.

Manual earwax removal consists of the Audiologist using a forecep in the ear, alongside the use of a microscope to gently pull out earwax that despite oiling is too hard to remove. This is a brilliant earwax removal alternative to the microsuction and water syringing methods. It is a dry method that produces no sound or buzzing during the procedure making it the preferred method for people who are easily startled, don’t like using water or have a large amount of impacted wax.

Read About Our Happy Customers

I attended the Hinckley Road branch of Hear4U on 5th August 2021 and found the whole experience stress free.

The surroundings are very relaxing, the reception was friendly (even the dog was friendly) and the audiologist was efficient, informative and very professional. Moreover, she succeeded in removing the wax from my right ear (which had been blocked for many weeks in spite of using all sorts of wax removing remedies) such that a minimum level of hearing has been restored where, previously, there was none. I shall certainly be attending again whenever the need arises.

Highly recommended.
