Earwax removal with the TympaHealth microsuction unit - a safe and effective way to remove earwax by one of our trained and accredited pharmacists.
How does it work?
Book an appointment
Book at a time that suits you through our website or you can call us on 02039879202. Each appointment is booked for a 40-minute time slot.
Use olive oil ear drops for 5 days before your appointment
Using olive oil ear drops is important to soften the wax to allow for a successful microsuction procedure. We recommend using the ear drops three to four times a day for up to 5 days before the appointment.
Attend your earwax removal appointment
During the appointment, our trained pharmacists will explain the process and complete a risk assessment form with you. They will then use a special camera to look inside your ears and proceed with microsuction. Photos and videos can be taken to show you the results at the end.
If the earwax is not soft enough. the removal can be unsuccessful. In this case, we would recommend a follow-up appointment after using olive oil ear drops for 5 days.
You may feel dizzy after the procedure but this usually passes quickly.
If you continue to experience any symptoms such as discomfort and tinnitus after earwax removal, please discuss this with your GP.
We recommend annual reviews following your appointment.
