NIRA Pro Laser review

A quick summary…

by | August 11, 2023

NIRA has endowed this dinky, no-fuss, non-fractional rejuvenation laser with a large aperture. Use it to target fine lines, wrinkles and folds, or regenerate any skin on your face, neck, chest or back of hands! It’s safe for all skin tones and types, and it’s for both women and men. With no pain, it creates heat in your lower skin layers. This triggers a collagen-boosting, skin-healing response for gradually brighter, firm, smooth, supple & perfected skin.

NIRA Pro skin rejuvenation laser review by

What is it?

The NIRA Pro rejuvenation laser is a non-ablative non-fractional laser that’s FDA-cleared, safe and effective for use at home. The laser aperture is big enough to cover your full face, neck, décolletage and hands in a single session. NIRA also offers an optional hydrating serum, but the laser needs no gels or other consumables to work.

It works like this.

👉 Pulses from the 1450nm infrared laser energy reach down to your skin’s dermis layer. Water in your dermis absorbs the energy and creates heat. The laser precisely controls the heat so it won’t cause pain. But it’s hot enough to trigger your skin’s healing response. This means your fibroblasts build stronger collagen and elastin, which supports and regenerates your skin so it gradually perks up. The result is firmer, supple skin, and smoothed-away fine lines and wrinkles.

First impressions

The NIRA Pro Laser comes in a small but sturdy white cardboard box with a branded lid, finished in an attractive pink and white slide-off information sleeve. It has all the important information; from contraindications, kit contents, satisfaction scores, to a couple of before and after results photos. It’s feminine, neat and simple, friendly, but professional.

NIRA has their own Hyaluronic Serum available to buy separately or in a budle with the laser. They offer it because Hyaluronic Acid hydrates and aids your skin’s repair process. You can try the NIRA serum (there’s more about it later), or choose your own preferred serum, ideally with Hyaluronic Acid.

Quality & design

The small and smooth white laser looks to me like a teeny retro-style hairdryer. It’s simple and understated, with just a small NIRA logo halfway up the handle front.

In this montage the teeny NIRA Pro laser does a spin showing his front, side and back. He has clean lines and a proud posture.
A teeny laser with a bit of character

It measures 17.5cm tall with a rounded triangular-shaped handle which fits comfy in your hand. The lines are smooth and curved gently. The neck narrows up to the treatment head, which is angled upwards, making this tiny laser appear somewhat inquisitive or proud.

The treatment head has a target pattern vent on the rounded back, and it gently tapers along the length to the business end. The almost square laser aperture has rounded corners and is big compared to other at-home lasers. Look closely and you can see the workings inside.

The NIRA Pro laser is 17.5cm tall, 4cm wide & 4cm deep. The treatment head is 6cm long and 4cm wide tapering to the rounded square-shape laser aperture, at 25mm wide and 22mm high.

The laser is solid and well-made, with close seams and joins in the smooth glossy plastic shell. It’s heavier than it looks because of the lithium-ion battery inside, but it’s still lightweight, balanced and comfy to hold. There’s a grey silicone ring on the base to stop is slipping when it stands up. And there’s just a single power button on the lower front of the handle.

The laser is smooth & glossy with close seams. At the bottom of the handle on the side are the charging port and battery indicator lights.

The NIRA Pro has just one round button to control it, low down on the front of the handle.
Simple one-button control.

The laser is easy to charge. I like it comes with just a USB charging cable with no bulky plugs or charging cradles. Insert the cable and you see blinking orange lights to show it’s charging. It takes 3 hours for each full charge. When fully charged, both orange lights on the side will show solid orange.

NIRA says you get 40 minutes of continuous use from each charge. They say this equates to 3 daily sessions if treating all areas (face, neck, chest and hands). However, using the highest intensity level 5 may reduce this, so you may need a recharge after 2 full sessions.

Charging & battery life for the NIRA Pro laser: It takes 3 hours to fully charge, A full charge lasts 40 mins of use (roughly 3 days if zapping all treatment areas), You’ll see 2 solid orange lights when it’s fully charged, and the same lights blink whilst it charges.
Charging & battery life of the NIRA Pro Laser.

It’s very simple to operate. Press the power button and you’ll hear a series of quick ascending beeps. At the same time above the power button the 5 intensity levels and a segmented green circle light up green. Press the power button the cycle through the intensity levels accompanied by ascending beeps, then back to level one again. It remembers your last used intensity level when you turn the laser on.

When you turn on the laser it sings “Doodley doodley dee!”, and shows the intensity levels 1 to 5 and a segmented circle just above. Press the power button again to cycle through the levels. Your last used level is remembered for next time!
Very simple operation & control.
When you long-press the button, the laser powers down. The intensity lights turn off one-by-one from 5 down to 1, and then the segmented circle light goes out to. It's accompanied by 2 descending beeps.
Long-press the power button to turn it off

Long-press the power button to turn off the laser. You’ll hear two descending beeps. And I like how the lights turn off one by one, leading down to the power button. There’s no storage bag with the NIRA Pro. But the tiny white box does an even better job and fits neatly in a drawer.

Before you start

When your NIRA Pro laser arrives, set it up to charge. Whilst it’s charging, read the user manual.
Don’t forget to read the user guide!

There’s a handy quick-start reference guide at the start that covers how to use the laser. But be sure to read the rest of the manual too.

The in-depth user manual explains; how to use it, how it works, when to use it, charging, troubleshooting, cleaning, care and maintenance, results, and expectations. There are also the important precautions, warnings/contraindications, disposal info, tech specs and labelling. And finally, on the back page, the NIRA Skincare contact information.

You must be over 12 years old to use the laser (seems ridiculously young to me!) And don’t use it if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, undergoing fertility treatments, on cut or broken skin, on sun-exposed or tanned skin, or if you have a history of skin cancer.

There’s no direction for a skin test. Simply try it out. Start on the lowest level and check how it feels. Then move up a level. Test them all or up to the highest level that doesn’t sting or hurt.

How to use it

You'll need the Pro Laser and a mirror. Have serums & moisturisers handy for afterwards
I use a small handheld mirror to see what I’m doing

Use the laser on clean and dry skin. Do it at any time of the day that suits you. I prefer an evening session as I get ready for bed because it’s easy to remember then and I’m not in a rush. You’ll need a mirror so you can see what you’re doing.

  1. Wash & dry your face
  2. Turn on the laser & select your intensity
  3. Position firmly and still against your skin until you hear the first and second beeps 
  4. Lift and position with a little overlap in the next spot 
  5. Continue until you’ve zapped all your treatment areas
Treatment areas with the NIRA Pro Laser: Forehead, cheeks, undereye, upper lip, chin, neck, décolletage, hands. And, unlike most other technologies, it’s safe to use on the centre line of the neck!
Where you can zap!

The laser aperture must be flush against your skin before it’ll pulse. It takes roughly 3 seconds for each pulse to complete. If the laser loses full skin contact, the pulse stops and it sounds a low and quick ‘duh’ error sound. Do the pulse again if it failed at the start of the pulse. If towards the end of the pulse, move on to the next spot. That’s because a double-dose pulse is intensely hot and owie.

The laser counts every 10 pulses, at the end of which it gives a reassuring beep. NIRA suggests it takes 10 pulses for around each eye. They also say it takes 3 to 5 minutes to treat your entire face, and 1 to 2 minutes each for your hands, neck and chest. So, if you do all those areas, that’s from 11 and up to 13 minutes for a full session.

Hold the laser firm & flush against your skin. Each pulse takes 3 seconds and uses a “Bu…beep!” sound to let you know when it’s started and finished. You’ll hear a “Duh!” error noise if you lose skin contact and the pulse won’t finish. There are also marker beeps every 10 pulses.
The little laser communicates with you via a series of beeps!
Place each zap of the NIRA Pro Laser aperture in a slightly overlapping pattern to cover all your skin. The laser aperture shaoe is a rounded corner square.
With slight overlap, work in strips to cover your skin

If after 2 minutes you don’t pulse the laser, it turns itself off. Buh-bye!

What’s it like and feel like?

Although the NIRA Pro is easy to use, it requires eyes-on concentration to position and flash the laser. Therefore, I prefer to listen to music or a podcast whilst I zap away rather than trying to watch TV. You can use it any time of the day.


TIP: If you zap in the morning, remember afterwards to apply sunscreen to protect your skin during any daily sun exposure!

The laser device is lightweight and comfy to hold both vertically and horizontally. It’s easy to see where you place the laser aperture on most areas too. And there’s no button to press because it pulses on close skin contact. Therefore, it’s intuitive and strain-free.

What does the NIRA Pro laser feel like? It’s lightweight & handy, hot but bearable pulses, pain-free, leaves pink skin which quickly fades, and has no nasty side effects!
Simple, easy and pain-free

The laser aperture also leaves a slight impression ring on your skin, which you can use as a guide to position the next pulse with slight overlap. But you must concentrate and be close enough to a mirror to see it. Therefore, I prefer using a handheld mirror versus a vanity mirror above the bathroom sink.

It fits well on the upper lip and around the crow’s feet area. And the skin sensor is responsive and fast. The first beep of the pulse starts when the laser aperture is just above your skin (within 1cm). So, it’s easy to position and zap the skin on padded areas like cheeks, but also on thinner areas like your neck and forehead. You quickly find a steady rhythm to position, beep-pause-beep, and repeat.

After almost 20 zaps of the laser, the cooling fan starts up. It then runs continuously, smoothly and efficiently, to keep the laser zapping.

The low-intensity pulses feel gently warm, whereas level five feels comparatively hot. However, I find it totally bearable and comfortable in most areas. For me, my outer neck is the most heat sensitive, so I sometimes drop to level four.


TIP: Don’t zap the same spot twice in a row because the second pulse grows in intensity to a sharp and intense burny heat! Ouchie.

The zaps leave my skin a little pink. But this quickly fades after your session. There’s no pain (if you use your best intensity level) and no nasty skin reactions either (such as flaking skin). If your skin feels a little dry, be sure to apply a hydrating serum and moisturiser after your session. The NIRA Hyaluronic Serum is a lovely cool gel formulation that goes a long way and feels rather splendid too.

A few tips…

Here are a few additional tips and comments about using the laser:

I prefer to work in strips up and down my chin, cheeks and forehead. I like to get as close as possible to my lip line and lower lash line, so I take it slowly and precisely to position the laser in these areas. But unfortunately, it’s too big to fit under the inner corners of my eyes.

The NIRA Pro Laser apertures is too big to fit in the inner corners of your eyes!
You can’t zap all the under-eye area.

Treating your décolletage is easy. Looking in a mirror, I work in up-and-down strips with the laser held vertical. You need to angle the mirror or your body if you want to see the impression marks and exactly where you’re placing the aperture. Otherwise, just move it roughly 2cm to the next spot. You can pull the skin on your collarbone with your free hand to ensure every bit’s covered too. 

You’ll need to tilt your head to see where you’re zapping under your chin and along your jawline. But the laser is small and conveniently angled so you can hold your arm at a comfy angle as you work around your neck. Unlike most other at-home devices, you can also safely treat the centre line of your neck too.

Hands are the easiest to treat. It’s best to pancake your hand against a hard surface and use good pressure.

Pancake your hands flat and use firm pressure to easily get a flash with the Pro laser on the backs of your hands. Work in up-and-down or left-to-right strips covering your skin with slight overlap. For me it takes around 20 pulses per hand.
How to zap your hands…

Schedule, effort & results

Use the laser daily on each treatment area. It’s for ongoing use.

The NIRA Pro Laser treatment schedule : Do one session per day on each treatment area. It's for ongoing daily use. You could do 2 sessions per day for faster results (if you have the time). You'll see changes after 60 days, but your best results come after 90 days.
The NIRA Pro Laser ongoing daily treatment schedule

The total session duration depends on how many areas you’ll treat. NIRA suggests it takes 3 to 5 minutes to treat your entire face, and 1 to 2 minutes for each additional area. So, that’s around 11 minutes for all areas. I take slightly longer per session, closer to 15 minutes. But that’s still quick enough to fit in each day, even when I lack my usual motivation.


TIP: NIRA says you can use the laser twice daily for faster and ‘enhanced’ results if you have the time. Double the sessions mean more heat in your dermis layer and a greater healing response.

You could do a session in the morning and another at night, or do two in a row. If you do the latter, don’t zap the same bit of skin within one minute as this can smart a bit.

The sessions are very easy. There are no faffy gels to apply and no routines to learn. It takes just a week or two to become a habit.


✔️Fades fine lines & wrinkles ✔️Firms & smooths ✔️Better elasticity for supple, bouncy skin ✔️Brightens for a younger-looking complexion

Over the first 60 days, your skin gradually rebuilds healthier collagen and elastin. So, it takes at least this long to see noticeable results. It’s after 90 days you’ll see your best results with smoothed fine lines and wrinkles, and firmer, supple and brighter skin. Keep going with your daily sessions to keep these results.

Your age, lifestyle and overall skin condition affect your results. So, as with all home beauty devices, you may see significant changes or they may be more subtle. Results vary by individual.

Take photos…

Take before and after comparison photos so you can see your progress! Because changes are hard to spot when you scrutinize your skin every day!

The Negatives

There’s not much to dislike about the easy NIRA Pro Laser, so just a couple of negatives to consider.

First, as mentioned earlier in the review, you can’t reach the entire under-eye area as the aperture is too big to fit. If your eyes are your biggest concern, look at the original NIRA Precision laser with a small aperture specifically suited to the eye area.

Second, the HA serum is a lovely cooling gel consistency, and it’s moisturising. But it’s expensive and nothing special even when compared to other cheaper Hyaluronic Acid serums from The Ordinary, for example. It contains only water, Sodium Hyaluronate and preservatives. It’s ok and feels good but you can buy cheaper alternatives. However, NIRA leaves it as an optional extra, and I like they don’t use aggressive marketing tactics here, unlike other brands.

Next, you can’t squirrel away the laser safely in the small box as it charges. That’s because the laser mould faces the opposite way to how the charging laser lies with the charging port on top. I often charge my laser on the floor next to a power outlet, so being tucked inside the box would offer more protection. It’s a small niggle, but it’s still a shame.

The laser device mould in the box faces the wrong way to allow the laser to sit in the box properly as it charges. That's because the charging port is on the opposite side.
The laser doesn’t fit in the box when charging…

And finally, this little guy is expensive at full RRP. However, NIRA run offers regularly so you can find good deals at and other retailers like You can also try it with a 90-day money-back guarantee from and a 60-day money-back guarantee from If the Pro laser isn’t for you, you can return it for a refund.

NIRA Pro Laser Review Summary

This Pro laser from NIRA has a larger laser aperture so you can treat bigger and more treatment areas in one sitting. It’s easy, comfy and intuitive, without faffy gels or complicated routines. The painless sessions quickly become a habit. It’s a top choice for smoother, supple and bright skin for a younger-looking visage. Try it with a long money-back guarantee too.

The NIRA Pro Laser is easy, comfy and intuitive, and fast enough to treat large areas of your face, neck, chest and hand.

Here’s a summary of my test scores, and pros and cons for the NIRA Pro Laser to help you decide:

Ease of use


This is a small, cordless, lightweight and intuitive laser, with decent battery life and no faffy gels. Use it on your face, neck, chest & backs of hands. There’s no button to press – just place it, wait for the beeps, then reposition with a slight overlap, and repeat. The pulses feel warm to hot and are easily adjustable



A low to medium-effort but easy device. Treat your face in 3 to 5 mins, plus around 2 mins for each additional area (up to 15 mins max). It quickly becomes a habit and is easy to stick with. You can double-up for faster results if you have the time.



The laser works gradually in your skin’s dermis. Some pinky redness post-session which fades quickly. Feel and see subtle changes after 60 days, but best results after 90 days of continuous use. Skin is smooth, firm, meatier, and bright with faded and softened fine lines and wrinkles.
