Wax removal by RCCP Registered Clinical Audiologists
with over 20 years health care experience
We know how important your hearing is and understand how distressing it can be when it's gone!
At Surf Mould Pro (SMP) our preferred method of wax removal is micro-suction, recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence.
The process is considered safer than syringing and involves gentle suction to extract wax. It is not painful and is usually over within a very short time. The aim of our experienced Clinical Audiologists is to get you hearing again as quickly and safely as possible.

What is ear wax and why do we get it?
Ear wax is produced by the ear to clean itself! It's lines the ear canal and helps to protect it from infection and foreign bodies. Healthy ear wax migrates slowly along the ear canal. The bright yellow wax you may see at the entrance of the ear canal is healthy and has completed it's journey. It is not usually a sign of a problem.
Unfortunately ear wax sometimes builds up excessively. This can be because of excessive cleaning with cotton buds, otitis externa (dry skin) exostosis (surfer's ear) outer ear pathology or just a disposition to producing excessive wax.
