If you’re considering trying the Mira-skin I hope it helps you decide.
Here’s a quick summary of what it is.
Mira-skin system summary
The Mira-skin system is a small ultrasound wand which partners with a potent Hyaluronic Acid serum and your own skincare. Together, they replenish the Hyaluronic Acid molecules lost in aging skin and get other anti-aging skincare goodies deep down where they work harder. The ultrasonic waves also create gentle heat which energises your skin cells so they build more and stronger collagen and elastin.
So, with regular use Hyaluronic Acid builds. The water it binds with intensely hydrates, plumps and soothes skin, smoothing and reducing fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. Other actives in the serum brighten your complexion, and your own skincare goodies do their thing too. Finally, your increased collagen and elastin brighten and refresh your skin. It’s an all-round powerhouse skincare home device.
Advertised results: The Mira-skin system promises you glow, hydration, lift, to plump & smooth skin, reduce fine lines & wrinkles, fade age spots and pigmentation.
It’s for ongoing use. Use the serum daily and with the ultrasound boost 1 or 2 times a week. Feel the difference within a few sessions. Results build and become visible after 1 to 2 months. Keep going to maintain your results.

This Mira-skin user trial
My Mam is the lucky tester of the Mira-skin system. She’s 71 years old and I bought the system as her Christmas present. I chose it because it sounds the best fit for more mature skin.
It’s also rather special because she invests in pricey skincare from Elemis. I like the idea they’ll work together so she’ll get more for her money. Plus, it’s a pretty low effort system without any unpleasant sensation or side effects. Right up her street.
She’s tested it for 6 months so far.
These are the before photos.
And her skin concerns description.“My skin is very dry over my nose, cheeks and tops of lips. So, I love the idea of deep-hydration to soothe it. I also have some sun damage and a large age spot on my right cheek. If they fade, I’m happy.
I’ve had my wrinkles for some time now 😊 They don’t bother me too much but I wouldn’t say no to filling them a bit. I don’t have deep horizontal forehead lines or crow’s feet, just slight 11s lines, under eye wrinkles, smile and pucker lines around my mouth.
To be honest, I’m not expecting any drastic changes. But, if there are, that’s ok with me! Having said that, I do like a bit of premium product and pamper time so I’m looking forward to this trial.”
This is how it went.
The first 2 months“ This thing is easy to get the hang of, and I really enjoy it. After the first couple of goes everything is dead easy to remember. I don’t feel anything during the session, just peace, quiet and pampering.
The ultrasound wand feels quality. Not too big, not to small. Nice and light to move around my face. And the battery lasts for ages. I’ve only charged it once so far.
I like the serum, although the pump is a bit fiddly for my hands. The serum itself sinks right into my thirsty skin so I must be quick to apply it evenly all over. I need 2 pumps for face and neck.
The gel’s ok despite being a bit tacky. I use my fingers to apply it, then give a quick wipe on a towel draped on my knee. It doesn’t drip, sting my eyes or smell. Cool at first, it soon warms on your skin, and sometimes dries a bit itchy on my face. But it’s fine once wiped off at the end.

The wand is easy to use, the diagrams for how to move it over your face are clear. It’s simple and easy to remember. The first couple of goes, I found the gel dried too quickly when I applied it to my whole face. So, now I smooth it on in sections. I turn the wand off and sit it in my lap whilst gelling the next section. And I’ve worked out exactly how much gel I need per section too so there’s little waste. I start with my forehead and work down my face.
It’s a very calming and pampering experience! It’s part of my 9pm nightly wind-down routine. Very relaxing before sleep. I use it 3 times a week but don’t have set nights; I just space them over the week. It takes me around 10 minutes because I start / stop to apply the gel in sections.
Afterwards, I put on my Elemis Oxygenating night cream or calming lavender skin bliss capsule. I love this (expensive) skincare brand so I’m very happy more of it gets into my skin. Once done my skin feels soft and hydrated. And I’m calm and relaxed, ready for bed!”
The results at 2 months
During these first 2 months my Mam and I spoke a few times by video call. I thought her complexion looked brighter, but it was difficult to tell without a comparison. She shared her thoughts on her results so far:“My skin is soft and moist to the touch. Those dry patches on my upper lip, nose and cheeks disappeared a month or so ago and haven’t come back. I enjoy using the Mira-skin. I think the serum maybe helps reduce my wrinkles, but honestly, I can’t really see any change.”
And that makes me a little sad. I’d hoped for more, for her. But hang on.
As it turns out, her distinct lack of enthusiasm is because she can’t see her face clearly when looking in a mirror. So, even if there are changes she literally can’t see them. Her cursed presbyopia. Or not, because as far as she’s concerned, she has no wrinkles at all! Huzzah. If you can’t see them, they don’t exist.
Anyhoo, let’s compare the 2-month photos to the originals.
Here’s what we see:
- Skin is plumper and firmer (especially the cheeks), with more elasticity on the neck
- Lower jaw skin has filled out, subtly lifting the jowls
- Skin redness has reduced A LOT! There’s slight fading of a few red broken spider veins on the cheeks too
- The large age spot on her right cheek is about the same. But the rest of her complexion is clear and bright.
- Skin tone has evened out and it glows
- Wrinkles are still there, but have softened. It’s particularly noticeable on upper cheeks and upper lip
- Skin texture is smoothed
Now I’m happy.
To celebrate, we gave the Mira-skin sheet mask a try with the wand.
And. Oh. My.
The Mira-skin hyper-hydration sheet mask
The results are impressive. This is the treatment you’ll get at creator Anni Valentin’s clinic. Now I see what all the fuss is about.
I see skin that’s brighter, juicy-soft and plump (yes, like a baby’s bum). Pinky-purple patches have faded and overall the skin looks fresh and healthy. Wrinkles have softened especially on cheeks / under eyes area. And her skin looks smooooth and glowy.
Mira-skin hyper-hydration sheet masks cost €15.90 each / $59.99 for 4.
The next 3 months
The trial continues over the next 3 months. My Mam reports:“I still use the wand 3 times a week, and now I apply the serum twice a day daily, both morning and evening. I also use a Mira-skin sheet mask monthly as a special pampering treat.
About a month ago, I started to feel a big difference in my skin. Maybe because I’m using the serum more now? It’s very hydrated and full.”
Unfortunately, she still can’t see her face in detail and therefore any change in her skin.
So, let’s take a look at results 6 months in.
The results after 6 months
The results have improved since last time. Here’s what we see:
- Skin feels even better. No dryness, very moist & super-soft
- Looks bright, smooth, hydrated, dewy and full. Plump and healthy
- Some of the wrinkles have softened further around mouth, upper cheeks and eyes
- Skin texture has smoothed (chin), and jowls and neck are more elastic and lifted
- Redness has all gone, skin tone is unified, bright and it glows
Is the Mira-skin ultrasound & Hyalurin kit worth it?
My Mam says:“Honestly, I only see the changes when comparing the photos! But I feel good about it. And regardless, I love the regular pamper time (I’d do more ultrasound if allowed). It’s quick and just a few times a week so easy to fit in.
I think the serum is excellent. Plus, it’s not bad value for how long it lasts (around 3 months if using 2 squirts from 50ml bottle twice daily (€139.00/ $129.99). My favourite brand serum is the same price for 20ml less.
So, with the money I save I bought an even more expensive night cream (don’t tell my husband 😜). It’s beautiful, and I love the Mira-skin makes it’s even more effective.
The sheet masks are very indulgent. But I must admit, I forgot to use the wand along with my last 2 monthly sheet masks! So, I suppose I’ve not really seen the benefit from them yet. Maybe they’ll be more improvement in a few months’ time. Watch this space.
But yes. I’d definitely recommend the Mira-skin system to anyone with more mature or dry skin like I had. Or to anyone who wants plump, healthy, smooth and soft skin. Which I think is just about everyone.”
