Ear Wax Removal

Treating earwax

Ear wax is a natural by-product of the ear canal and in most of the population it falls out without any intervention. If it does build up it can cause your hearing to be reduced and a blocked feeling, there are two methods of removing wax, the preferred method today would be microsuction.

At Bryce Hearing Services we recommend that an ear wax softening product, such as Earol Olive Oil Spray, is used for at least a couple of days before your appointment, this will help to soften the built up wax and will make it easier and quicker to remove. However ear drops and sprays of any type must not be used if you have a perforated eardrum!


This is where a special suction device is used to remove the earwax under a microscope. The procedure is quick, safe and painless.

Ear Irrigation

The less common method of wax removal is irrigation, this involves using a pressurised flow of water to gently remove the build-up of wax in the ear canal.

At your appointment you will be asked questions about:

  • Pain in either ear
  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo (the sensation of movement when still)
  • Hearing loss


These symptoms may be the result of an ear infection and must be treated before wax removal can be performed.

Ear irrigation is not recommended if you have:

  • Previously had problems with irrigation, such as pain in your ear or severe vertigo
  • A perforated eardrum, or you have had a perforated eardrum in the last 12 months
  • A discharge of mucus from your ear, which may indicate an undiagnosed perforation
  •  Had a middle ear infection (otitis media) in the past six weeks
  • A grommet (a small hollow tube surgically inserted into your ear if you have a build up of fluid that causes hearing difficulties)
  • Had ear surgery, apart from cases of extruded grommets, within the last 18 months
  • A cleft palate (whether repaired or not)
  • A foreign body in your ear
  • A severe external ear infection (acute otitis externa) with pain in the ear canal or pinna (the visible part of your ear)

5* Excellent in every way. I took Grandpa along for wax removal, he has had hearing aids for 5 years however he has recently been having alot of issues with a wax and his hearing aids. Jayne welcomed us into the practice, she was friendly, welcoming and helpful. It was clear to both of us that Jayne was really knowledgeable and a expert in her field. She also very patient, kind, caring and compassionate towards my Grandpa. What we was liked most was how genuine Jayne is, she went above and beyond to help, she provided a excellent service and high standard of care throughout. This approach helped to relax my grandpa, we spoke as a family and decided to book a appointment for a hearing test and assessment. We are hopeful that with Jayne’s help we can find the best hearing aids that will transform and greatly improve my grandfathers life. My grandpa and I fdhgv recommend Bryce hearing clinic-5/5*

I had issues with wax blockage for weeks. As it is deep in my ear, I had to use irrigation method. Jayne managed to do it first time in less than 10 mins. Very impressed with the service I received.

I highly recommend a visit to Bryce Hearing Services if you're experiencing any issues with your hearing. They've recently reopened after the lock down and have a comprehensive set of safety procedures and PPE in place which was very reassuring. The staff were both friendly and professional, and they use the latest microsuction technique for ear wax removal. It's quick and painless, and the relief was instantaneous. If hearing issues are driving you up the wall, don't suffer in silence - go and see Bryce Hearing Services, and support a great local business in Aberdeen!

Jayne has been removing my wax for two years now and has done a sterling job!, very professional but always has time for a chat. My last visit was last week and was handed a face mask and hand gel and also required a temprature check, they now wear full medical PPE and face shield it was very reassuring thank you Bryce Hearing 🙂

My husband visited here less than 2 weeks ago. He had had 4 appointments with nurse at GP practice cancelled- pre covid by the way. He was at his wits end as he struggled to hear phone calls, hear what was being said on t.v. Bryce hearing to the rescue and he is like a new man!! Absolutely delighted.
