Our Earwax Removal Service
Earwax is good for the health of your ears and it plays a vital role in preventing infection and removing debris from the ear canal. However, some people produce more than others, making them prone to a build-up over time that can become hard and impacted, leading to irritation, hearing loss, or infection, if not removed.
Using ear plugs or earphones can encourage wax to build up and if you use cotton buds (never recommended), you could be pushing the wax further down the ear canal causing it to harden and become impacted, potentially leading to permanent damage.
Certain skin conditions, like eczema can also contribute to excess earwax.

Micro suction wax removal explained
This pain-free method of wax removal uses a low-pressure suction probe inserted into the ear, without any water being needed, to remove excess wax and debris. It’s safe, quick, comfortable and effective.
We do not offer the alternative method, ear syringing, as it has been recognised as potentially harmful by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, and is no longer recommended.
Symptoms of Impacted earwax
If you’re suffering from any of these symptoms, you could have excess earwax:
Itchy ear | Discharge from the ear | Sensation of fullness in the ear | Sounds are muffled | Ringing sounds (tinnitus) Dizziness | Vertigo | Earache | Coughing
We’re here to help with any concerns you have about your ears, and to offer relief from earwax with micro-suction wax removal.
Affordable relief from earwax
Patient care is at the heart of what we do. And now that earwax removal is no longer available on the NHS (since September 2020), it’s important that patients can get the relief they need from earwax – quickly and affordably.
That’s why we’ve kept our prices low – wax removal costs from just £50 for one ear or £80 for both ears. It’s recommended to use an olive oil based spray, like Earol, for a few days before your appointment to help soften the wax and make it easier to remove.
