Ear Wax Candeling

The procedure used for ear wax removal can also be referred to as earwax irrigation.

It is a treatment that aims to loosen and soften wax that has accumulated in the ear and has become difficult to remove or disperse on its own. 

 

Ear wax build-up is often due to the wax having been pushed down into the ear canal. This is a common condition that occurs thorough cleaning of the ear, often through cotton buds. Impacted ear wax can become dry and hard. When this happens, it will need to be removed safely and easily. Various symptoms can indicate ear wax build-up, including loss of hearing, coughing, itching, ringing in the ears (tinnitus) or pain.

 

Before removing built-up earwax can be removed, Dr PJ Aesthetic Clinic will recommend using sodium bicarbonate ear drops. 3-4 drops will need to be administered twice a day for one week before the appointment. This will enable the earwax to soften before the procedure. 

 

The actual treatment employs the use of an electronic irrigator. The nozzle of the irrigator is placed just inside the ear canal. This device will then deliver a gush of warm water further into the ear to flush out the softened ear wax. Once removed, any associated symptoms should relieve, and the ear canal will be clear. 

 

During a pre-treatment consultation, she will ensure the patient receives sufficient advice regarding the procedure, including the benefits, risks, and related treatments.
