Syringing is no longer performed as a method of wax removal as it is deemed unsafe. It has been replaced with ear irrigation, which uses a machine to gently pulse a low pressure water into your ear. The water is carefully directed towards the upper ear canal wall to gently flow out, bringing the wax with it.
Most patients prefer microsuction which is a safe and effective technique for wax removal.
Our fully qualified clinical audiologists will carry out microsuction (or if preferred irrigation) with precision accuracy using high-spec examination microscopes.
Call 020 7486 1053 for an ear wax removal appointment or fill in below. The fee is £80.
Same day appointments are available and parking is available close to our clinics at 2 Harley Street or Golders Green. We are an essential service in lockdown.
So that ear wax can be removed easily we advise the use of softening drops or olive oil prior to your appointment.
Be assured appropriate social distancing is implemented throughout our clinic and your audiologist will be wearing PPE. We continue to disinfect all rooms and equipment after each appointment.
If you wear hearing aids please bring to your appointment and we can check and clean them for you.
Please seek the advice of your GP if you think you may have an infection and note that we can not issues prescriptions.
“This was my third visit, over a number of years, for micro suction treatment and, once again, I was delighted with the results. The procedure took no more than 20 minutes and was carried out in a safe and Covid secure environment. I would definitely recommend Harley Street Hearing.” Sue Morton
