Venus Concept


company snapshot

Restoration Robotics revolutionized the field of hair transplantation by developing and commercializing the ARTAS system, a state-of-the-art image-guided robotic device that improves the follicular unit extraction process used in best practice hair restoration procedures. The office-based robot is capable of rapidly harvesting and implanting individual hairs minimally invasively with precision, automating the tedious manual surgical technique now being performed by hair transplant surgeons. The company went public in 2017 and was acquired in 2019 by Venus Concept, an aesthetics company with a broad portfolio of products synergistic with ARTAS. Gil Kliman led InterWest’s investment in Restoration Robotics and served on the board until acquisition.
