Ear wax suction removal in Gold Coast is best accomplished with microsuction: a technique that relies upon tiny vacuums to remove deposits of wax from the ear.

Microsuction can be especially useful for removing larger deposits that have become more solid than average over prolonged amounts of time. Ear wax microsuction for kids is a common procedure for families whose children are avid swimmers, since regular submerging of the head in water can cause moist skin and wax to become compounded and make them more difficult to remove with other methods.

It should be noted that a certain amount of ear wax is necessary to lubricate the ear canal, while keeping it clean and protecting it from other substances. However, too much of anything can be a problem and ear wax is no exception. Preventing excessive ear wax build-up can be done in the following ways:

  • Regular use of ear drops to prevent small wax deposits from sticking in the ear canal — where they can eventually become larger problems.
  • Seeking out professionals who can use more advanced tools and methods to remove large amounts of wax from the ear.

Yes you can! You can watch your ears being cleaned. Our surgical microscope is connected to the tv – just sit back, relax and enjoy the show (though if you prefer, we can turn it off).

Yes. Our Registered Nurses are AHPRA Division One and have undertaken extensive practical and theoretical training specifically focused on microsuction ear wax removal and ear health.

Ear Cleaning Clinic is the only Gold Coast medical clinic that exclusively provides microsuction ear wax removal, our lovely Nurses perform microsuction all day, everyday (aka. they’re the experts)!

GPs will generally use Syringing. Microsuction is very thorough, therefore it removes all ear wax. Ear wax softening drops are not usually required prior to the procedure; however syringing often pushes the ear wax further down the canal and on to the eardrum, causing impacted wax.

A referral is not necessary to visit the clinic, however appointments are essential – we currently do not take walk ins.

Unfortunately it is a breach of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia’s policy for a nurse to endorse himself/herself for financial gain. Section 133 of the National Law states that a person must not advertise a regulated health service using testimonials about the service or business. Ear Cleaning Clinic has had many clients who have written testimonials and would love to have them displayed, however it is against the law.

Most people already think ear wax is gross, but did you know that it can also be a problem when there’s too much of it? If you didn’t, you’ve probably never had an ear infection due to wax build-up before — and that makes you one of the lucky ones.

Many people experience ear infections from wax build-up at some point or another in their lives, but it can start when people are still just kids.

If you or your child is suffering from excessively waxy ears, it’s important to investigate ear wax microsuction treatments from professionals who are used to dealing with such problems.
