First Steps – The Comprehensive Consultation

The first step into cosmetic injectables can be unnerving for some people. Having treated 80,000 plus patients, we understand this at Amara.

This has led us to develop a pathway for first-time patients who may be nervous, confused, anxious or all three.

Your first step consultation with us will be an appointment of up to 45min. In this no-rush session, we will take time to properly understand what you’ve come to us for, answer all your questions about our fool catalogue of services, and give you honest guidance on how we can help.

What are consultations in aesthetic clinics usually like?

When you book into most aesthetic clinics for the first time you are given 15-20mins with a doctor. During this time you are expected to:

  • meet the doctor & develop a rapport
  • discuss your concerns
  • have a consultation and an assessment
  • take photos
  • plan a treatment
  • run through questions and concerns
  • decide then and there if it’s for you
  • prep for treatment
  • receive the treatment
  • discuss aftercare

This can be overwhelming and feel rushed, especially if it’s your first time.




What we know about first-time patients at Amara.

You have questions.

You don’t know if botox or filler is best for you?
Will you look done?

You want to know more about profhilo and its results and how it’s different from filler?

You noticed a small concern you’ve had for a while become a little more prominent in the last year and you want to know more about what can be done about it?

Will 1ml of filler do that much?

Instagram tells you this treatment is great while TikTok tells you it’s dangerous – which is it?

Do injections hurt?

There are several expensive new treatments with lasers, radio frequency, thread lifting and needling – but do any of them work?
What kind of skincare will suit your skin in particular?

Google has done nothing but confuse you, or worse, made you scared.




How does Amara Clinic make it easier for first-timers?

The Comprehensive Consultation is more detailed, more personalized, and more geared toward giving you the best information you need.

This enables you to make better decisions about the cosmetic treatments you’re curious about.

For your first visit, we allocate up to 45mins with an Amara doctor where you can discuss as little or as much as you’d like in a consultation that’s not rushed.

It is about creating a long-term relationship with an expert practitioner who has your best interests at heart.

What is involved in The Comprehensive Consultation?

In a Comprehensive Consultation, we spend 45mins understanding what you’ve come to us for and paying attention to your concerns and questions. Photography, assessment and planning will take place but there is no obligation to treat at this first-time appointment. And this means you can relax and ask all the questions you want.

We want you to go away after your first-step consultation feeling confident in us and the plan our doctors have for you.




What the Comprehensive Consultation is not.

  • It is not a sales pitch
  • It is not where we force you into a chair to have treatment
  • It is not about discussing anything you don’t want to discuss
  • It is not rushed

No one that comes to us ‘needs’ anything. But if something is bothering you, we can help. Our reviews may help you understand our philosophy. 



Why should I undertake a comprehensive assessment?

It is the surest way to you making good decisions about treatments that can address your concerns. We want you to feel comfortable with us and what we do.

The more you know, the more you can discuss with us, and the better your results. Our subtle, natural results that last philosophy will have your friends asking you what your secret is.

Treatment fads come and go. Popping in to see an aesthetician for a specific treatment once or twice a year is fine. But attending someone who knows your face, who has been there for the journey, and with whom you’ve discussed your needs is a much better idea.




Why should I attend Amara Clinic?

We have your best interests at heart and want you to feel confident in what we do.

We own our beautiful city centre clinic in the Georgian Quarter of Dublin.

Our doctors only work in aesthetics and only work in Ireland. This means you’ll always be able to contact your doctor for ongoing advice.

We have over 20 years of experience with high-quality products, training with world-leading injectors, and expert-level competency with the best techniques behind us.

We are a medical clinic first and foremost, which means we take safety seriously and are responsible to you.

We politely decline to treat 1 in 10 clients because performing the treatment they want is unsafe or will not benefit them.





How much does the comprehensive consultation cost?

This first-step consultation with the doctor lasts up to 45mins, and the cost is €200.

This is redeemable off the cost of any treatment you receive within a month of the session.

It is returned to you if you are not suitable for treatment.




Will I receive treatment on the day?

If you wish to proceed and you are satisfied with what you have heard, then yes, some treatments may be performed.

If not we can rearrange a session for another day. You will never be forced into a treatment chair in Amara.

The main objective of your first session is to plan a pathway for you with an eye to the future. It’s not about rushing you into having procedures done.

Your first step into the realm of cosmetic injectables should be a confident one.

I’m with with Amara Clinic since 2010, and I’m so satisfied with their services and affordable procedures and products. Dr. Paul, Dr. Mylene and other doctors are very well experienced and efficient. Siobhan is lovely, she helped me with my skin when my hyperpigmentations flared up.A million thanks Amara Clinics, for making me youthful looking.❤️❤️❤️

Dr Mylene is fantastic..she really listens to your concerns and makes sure you get the best results possible. I have had several treatments at Amara with Dr Paul and more recently with Dr Mylene and the treatments are of the highest quality and thr Dr's are so friendly and professional. I have tried other places for my treatments as I live a good distance away from the clinic , but I always return to Amara .

My mom and I went here recently for hydra facials and were so impressed! Everything was explained in detail with plenty of time allocated to the appointment, no rushing, absolutely no hard sell on products and kind service all the way around! My mom saw Gráinne and I saw Julia - both of them were amazing and got us set up with routines that are suitable and simple to follow. Skin is glowing! Robin at reception was so helpful and friendly and got us booked in again for follow ups - can’t wait!

I have had quite a few Hydrafacials at different clinics in Dublin, and back home in Copenhagen as well, but this clinic is so far the best.The therapist was lovely and she just really knew what she was doing. She made me feel very comfortable and relaxed while guiding me through the treatment.I also had a lot of questions regarding skin care and products because I have had some problems with acne and she took her time to answer all my questions without making me feel pressured to buy the products she was recommending me, which is important to me.I found my visit to the clinic to be excellent. The staff was welcoming and well-trained.Most importantly, my skin just felt and looked amazing afterwards.

I love this clinic!! I have been going here for over 5 years and although it is a huge trek for me I won’t ever go anywhere else for my skincare. The doctors and staff are so friendly and helpful and I cannot stress this point enough. I am not the kind of girl that gets regular facials or would follow a strict 6 step nightly skin regime. In fact, I would normally find this type of place daunting because I often feel judgement for not “being better” with this stuff. At Amara I have never felt like this. Everyone there always makes me feel so comfortable and genuinely wants to help me feel the best I can. I haven’t yet mentioned the results which are always incredible from the few things I’ve had done there . I am always so happily surprised by the results and the clinic is always so amazing with follow up appointments if necessary. I cannot vouch enough for this clinic!

From the moment you enter the clinic, you are greeted with lovely staff, the atmosphere is very calm and welcoming.A huge thank you to Siobhan for doing my hydrafacial, she made me feel very comfortable. Before the treatment she thoroughly explained the process and it's very evident that she is passionate in the work she does, she kept me informed of my facial every step of the way, and helped target my skin concerns along with great product recommendations. After my facial, I could instantly notice the difference on my skin.I will definitely reccomend amara clinic to my girlfriends and I look forward to coming back for more treatments.Thanks again!Ahlam
An unusual but very important review....Amara was very highly recommended to me by a colleague. I purchased a €2,000 voucher from Amara for my wife as a 50th birthday present. Needless to say, she was ecstatic. Due to Covid 19 financial difficulties, we reluctantly decided not to utilise the voucher and to request a refund....6 months later. These are terribly difficult times for businesses, so I felt more than a little embarassed and not very hopeful. I am 50 years old and have been around the block a few times, I have never encountered such professionalism and simple humanity. Never a question, I was fully refunded to my huge relief and complete satisfaction. This company clearly has a wonderful and primary customer care ethos. Their top, middle and bottom line is customer care - pure class. Sincerely, thank you Ronan and your team. We most certainly will be back.

My first visit to Amara (it won't be the last!) was excellent. Paul has such an easy manner, I felt very comfortable and at ease immediately. Everything was explained in detail so I knew exactly what was being done and why. There was no pushy sales technique - if anything it is evident that they will only do work that will benefit you - you won't pay for unnecessary treatments and any treatments you do have will be done with an emphasis on looking natural rather than 'done'. Very happy.

I can recommend Amara.Carolina makes you feel very welcome as soon as you arrive at this clinic.I had an Hydrafacial with Joanie that I will definitely indulge in again and also availed of her advice on their range of skin care products.I felt reassured by Dr Pauls pleasant unrushed manner and in particular with his conservative approach and natural results.He takes the time to explain what he is doing and why he thinks you need it which I like.I will definitely return.

I have been to Amara clinic a few times and the experience is always great. Today I had a Hydrafacial with Siobhan and I couldn't recommend it more. She took the time to review my skin routine, habits and explained to me the science behind our skin. The facial itself was great and my skin is feeling amazing. I will definitely be back!

Friendly, helpful staff that seem genuine.I didn't feel 'pushed' into buying products / services (which is what usually happens!)I am THAT person that asks LOTS of questions - *pedantic *, I see detail in everything and easily pick flaws, but was grateful for the professionalism here. Appreciated they listened and answered my dozen questions... Usually dont take the time to write reviews but the clinic followed up with a text and I figure they deserve it! Thanks Guys - I will be back :-)
I'm more than thrilled about my decsion to go to Amara for lip fillers. I've been researching for a few years but was always to nervous to follow through with the procedure. Dr. Paul is very thorough and honest. He explained everything he would do to achieve the desired result. I asked him for subtlety and thats exactly what I received. I couldn't be happier with my filler treatment and my lips look 100% natural, which was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Dr. Paul!

I had my first hyrdafacial treatment here, and loved it so much I’ve already booked another! The treatment itself is amazing, my skin was left feeling wonderful, and the benefits were noticeable straight away, and I my skin was noticeably soft and smooth for several weeks after the treatment. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. My therapist Joanie was lovely, and incredibly knowledgeable of the whole process, and really thorough when reviewing my skin needs. I would highly recommend the whole experience with Amara :)

Excellent professional friendly service from the minute you step inside the door with the lovely karolinaI have used a couple of different clinics in the past but this clinic is second to none .It's 5* plus , I've been coming here maybe two years nowIt's very important to receive proffessionl knowledge when having any facial procedures and this is what you get , this clinic is not just interested in taking your money but doing what is going to look natural and not the "done look " I have had treatments with the lovely Joanie in the past she's amazing highly recommend her for her knowledge and patience , her recommendations on prouducts that actully do work and Dr Paul is excellent at what he does , thank you and look forward to coming back in the near future .
I would highly recommend Dr Paul Munsanje for tear trough filler. I'm so delighted with the results! I had become quite sunken and dark under the eyes, after one visit there was an immediate and significant improvement. I no longer look tired all the time and don't need anymore concealer. There was a small amount of bruising for a few days afterwards but nothing that makeup couldn't hide. A real natural look - happy days!!

Had an amazing hydrafacial from Siobhan yesterday. She’s meticulous in her work and incredibly good at breaking down the science of skin into simple terms so I understood exactly where my skin was at, what she was going to do to it, and what I could do going forward to improve it. As well as this she was a complete dote and easy to chat to. I felt really well looked after by herself and the front of house guys AND my skin looks incredible, I didn’t think skin could be this smooth. Highly recommend.
Absolutely recommend Amara and Dr Paul Munsanje for providing a truly professional and warm service with fantastic results. Was particularly impressed by a tear trough filler which was stunning in its immediate effect and virtually painless. Found Paul to be really experienced, informative and understanding, felt very comfortable having the procedures and also done easily on my lunch hour. Most importantly, he did exactly what I wanted but achieved a far better result than I was aware was possible, and made it seem so easy.. so very impressive. I feel it’s the best money I’ve spent in years, very very happy. Did try a different clinic a few years ago and didn’t find it very good but feel Amara is in a different league, will definitely go back to Amara. All of the clinic are just lovely and welcoming so I would also credit them with a great team in-house. Well worth a visit.
