The irrigation solution is carefully warmed to body temperature for comfort. Using the controlled pressurised flow of water, we gently remove the build-up of ear wax. It is a straightforward process that ensures comfort and safety because of the controlled pressure of the water. Under the gentle force of the water, the ear wax is softened, broken up and washed out of the ear. While we irrigate your ear, we will gently pull your ear at different angles to make sure the water has full access to your ear canal. We will also pause several times to take a look inside your ear to check whether the wax is moving.
