TABLE OF CONTENTS

PROSPECTUS SUMMARY
This summary highlights information contained in other parts of this prospectus and in the documents we incorporate by reference. Because it is only a summary, it does not contain all of the information that you should consider before investing in our common stock and it is qualified in its entirety by, and should be read in conjunction with, the more detailed information appearing elsewhere or incorporated by reference in this prospectus. You should read all such documents carefully, especially the risk factors and our consolidated financial statements and the related notes included or incorporated by reference in this prospectus, before deciding to buy shares of our common stock.
Overview
We are an innovative global medical technology company that develops, commercializes and delivers minimally invasive and non-invasive medical aesthetic and hair restoration technologies and related services. Our systems have been designed on cost-effective, proprietary and flexible platforms that enable us to expand beyond the aesthetic industry’s traditional markets of dermatology and plastic surgery, and into non-traditional markets, including family and general practitioners and aesthetic medical spas. A substantial majority of our systems delivered in North America are in non-traditional markets. As we grow our ARTAS hair restoration business and expand robotics offerings through the AI.ME™ platform we expect our penetration into the core practices of dermatology and plastic surgery to increase.
We derive revenue from the sale of products and services. Product revenue includes revenue from the following:
the sale, including traditional sales and subscription-based sales, of systems, inclusive of the main console and applicators/handpieces (referred to as system revenue);
marketing supplies and kits;
consumables and disposables;
service revenue; and
replacement applicators/handpieces.
Service revenue includes revenue derived from our extended warranty service contracts provided to our existing customers.
Systems are sold through traditional sales contracts directly, through our subscription model and through distributors. In the third quarter of 2022, we commenced an initiative to reduce our reliance on system sales sold under subscription agreements in the United States. This strategic shift is designed to improve cash generation and reduce our exposure to defaults and increased bad debt expense given the increasingly challenging economic environment caused by the coexistence of high inflation and high interest rates.
We generate revenue under our subscription-based business model and from traditional system sales, which is available in North America and in targeted international markets in which we operate directly. We currently do not offer the ARTAS iX system under the subscription model.
Our subscription model includes an up-front fee and a monthly payment schedule, typically over a period of 36 months, with approximately 40% to 45% of total contract payments collected in the first year. To ensure that each monthly payment is made on time and that the customer’s system is serviced in accordance with the terms of the warranty, every product purchased under a subscription agreement requires a monthly activation code, which we provide to the customer upon receipt of the monthly payment. These recurring monthly payments provide our customers with enhanced financial transparency and predictability. If economic circumstances are appropriate, we provide customers in good standing with the opportunity to “upgrade” into our newest available or alternative Venus Concept technology throughout the subscription period. This structure can provide greater flexibility than traditional equipment leases secured through financing companies. We work closely with our customers to provide business recommendations that improve the quality of service outcomes, build patient traffic and improve financial returns for the customer’s business.
We have developed and received regulatory clearance for twelve novel aesthetic technology platforms, including our ARTAS and NeoGraft systems. We believe our ARTAS and NeoGraft systems are complementary and give us a hair restoration product offering that can serve a broad segment of the market. Our medical aesthetic technology platforms have received regulatory clearance for a variety of indications, including treatment of facial

TABLE OF CONTENTS

wrinkles in certain skin types, temporary reduction of appearance of cellulite, non-invasive fat reduction (lipolysis) in the abdomen and flanks for certain body types and relief of minor muscle aches and pains in jurisdictions around the world. In addition, our technology pipeline is focused on the development of robotically assisted minimally invasive solutions for aesthetic procedures that are primarily treated by surgical intervention, including the AI.ME platform for which we received FDA 510(k) clearance for fractional skin resurfacing in December 2022.
In the United States, we have obtained 510(k) clearance from the FDA for our Venus Viva, Venus Viva MD, Venus Legacy, Venus Versa, Venus Velocity, Venus Bliss, Venus Bliss Max, Venus Epileve, Venus Fiore, ARTAS, ARTAS iX and AI.ME systems. Outside the United States, we market our technologies in over 60 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America. Because each country has its own regulatory scheme and clearance process, not every device is cleared or authorized for the same indications in each market in which a particular system is marketed.
As of the date of this prospectus, we operate directly in 14 international markets through our 11 direct offices in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Germany, Australia, China, Hong Kong, and Israel.
Multi-Tranche Private Placement
On May 15, 2023, we entered into a stock purchase agreement, as subsequently amended on July 6, 2023, referred to herein as the “Stock Purchase Agreement,” with EW Healthcare Partners, L.P. and EW Healthcare Partners-A, L.P., collectively referred to herein as the “Investors.” Under the Stock Purchase Agreement, we may issue and sell to the Investors up to $9,000,000 in shares of our senior preferred stock, in multiple tranches from time to time until December 31, 2025, subject to a minimum purchase amount of $500,000 in each tranche, referred to herein as the “Private Placement.” Sales of senior preferred stock in the Private Placement are purely discretionary and must be approved by both the Company and the Investors.
The initial sale in the Private Placement occurred on May 15, 2023, under which we sold to the Investors an aggregate of 280,899 shares of senior preferred stock for an aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000. The second sale in the Private Placement occurred on July 12, 2023, under which we sold to the Investors an aggregate of 500,000 shares of senior preferred stock for an aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000. We have used, and will continue to use, the net proceeds from the Private Placement, after the payment of transaction expenses, for general working capital purposes.
See “Selling Stockholders – Description of Private Placement” beginning on page 8.

Our operations and financial results are subject to various risk and uncertainties.

Risk Factors” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in any subsequently-filed Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and those contained in our other filings with the SEC that are incorporated by reference in this prospectus. Any of the foregoing risk factors could adversely affect our business, results of operations, financial condition and prospects. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also adversely affect our business operations.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

RISK FACTORS
Investing in our securities involves significant risks. Please see the risk factors discussed below, as well as the risk factors under the heading “Item 1A – Risk Factors” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in any subsequently-filed Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, in addition to those contained in our other filings with the SEC that are incorporated by reference in this prospectus. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider these risks as well as other information we include or incorporate by reference in this prospectus. These risks could materially affect our business, financial condition or results of operations and cause the value of our securities to decline. The risks and uncertainties we have described are not the only ones we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also affect our business operations. The occurrence of any of these risks might cause you to lose all or part of your investment in the offered securities.
We may be unable to maintain the listing of our common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market, which could adversely affect our liquidity, as well as the trading volume and market price of our common stock.
On May 31, 2023, we received a notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market, or “Nasdaq,” stating that our stockholders’ equity, as reported in our Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2023, was below the minimum $2,500,000 amount required for continued listing of our common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1), referred to herein as the “Minimum Equity Requirement.”
The notice from Nasdaq has no immediate effect on the listing of our common stock. In accordance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules, we have 45 calendar days to submit a plan to regain compliance with the Minimum Equity Requirement. If the plan is accepted, Nasdaq may grant an extension of up to 180 calendar days from May 31, 2023 for us to regain compliance. We intend to submit a plan to regain compliance with Minimum Equity Requirement, and more generally, to take all reasonable measures available to remain listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market. However, if we are unable to regain compliance within the time period afforded by Nasdaq, Nasdaq will seek to delist our common stock.
Any delisting determination by Nasdaq could decrease or eliminate the value of an investment in our common stock (as well as other securities linked to our common stock). While a listing on an over-the-counter inter-dealer quotation system, referred to herein as the “OTC,” could maintain some degree of a market in our common stock, we could nevertheless suffer substantial adverse consequences from a delisting. These consequences may include reduced liquidity with respect to, and decreased trading prices of, our common stock; limited availability for market quotations for our common stock; a determination that our common stock is a “penny stock” under SEC rules, subjecting brokers trading our common stock to more stringent rules on disclosure and the class of investors to which the broker may sell the common stock; limited news and analyst coverage of our Company; reduced ability to issue additional securities or obtain additional financing in the future; and potential breaches under, or terminations of, certain of our material agreements. Additionally, institutional investors are usually prohibited from investing in OTC stocks, and it might be more challenging to raise capital when needed. The perception among investors that we are at heightened risk for delisting could also negatively affect the trading price and trading volume of our common stock.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This prospectus, and the documents incorporated by reference into this prospectus, contains “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, referred to herein as the “Securities Act,” and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, referred to herein as the “Exchange Act.” Any statements contained herein that are not of historical facts may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify these statements by words such as such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “plans,” “expects,” “projects,” “future,” “intends,” “may,” “should,” “could,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” “guidance,” and other similar expressions that are predictions of or indicate future events and future trends. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about:
our dependency on the subscription-based model, which exposes us to the credit risk of our customers over the life of each subscription agreement;
our customers’ failure to make payments under their subscription agreements;
our need to obtain, maintain and enforce our intellectual property rights;
the extensive governmental regulation and oversight in the countries in which we operate and our ability to comply with the applicable requirements;
the possibility that our systems may cause or contribute to adverse medical events that could harm our reputation, business, financial condition and results of operations;
a significant portion of our operations are located in Israel and therefore our business, financial condition and results of operations may be adversely affected by political, economic and military conditions there;
our ability to come into compliance with the listing requirements of the Nasdaq Capital Market;
the volatility of our stock price;
our dependency on one major contract manufacturer in Israel exposes us to supply disruptions should that facility be subject to a strike, shutdown, fire flood or other natural disaster;
our reliance on the expertise and retention of management;
our ability to access the capital markets and/or obtain credit on favorable terms;
inflation, currency fluctuations and currency exchange rates;
global supply disruptions;
global economic and political conditions and uncertainties, including but not limited to the Russia-Ukraine conflict; and
the expected timing, proceeds and other details with respect to future sales of senior preferred stock, if any, in the Private Placement.
Management believes the risks and impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business appear to have largely subsided, but we continue to closely monitor all COVID-19 developments including its impact on our customers, employees, suppliers, vendors, business partners, and distribution channels.
The above-described forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts, and projections about our business and the industry in which we operate and management’s beliefs and assumptions and are not guarantees of future performance or developments and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that are in some cases beyond our control. As a result, any or all of the forward-looking statements in this prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference in this prospectus may turn out to be inaccurate.
Factors which we currently believe could have a material adverse effect on our business operations and financial performance and condition include, but are not limited to, those risks and uncertainties described under “Item 1A – Risk Factors” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in any subsequently-filed Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and those contained in our other filings with the SEC that are incorporated by reference in this prospectus. You are urged to consider these factors carefully in evaluating the forward-looking statements and are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are based on information available to us as of the date of this prospectus and the date of any document incorporated by reference, as applicable. Unless required by law, we do not intend to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect new information or future events or otherwise.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

SELLING STOCKHOLDERS
This prospectus covers an aggregate of up to 2,082,426 shares of our common stock issuable upon conversion of outstanding shares of our senior preferred stock, which shares of common stock may be sold or otherwise disposed of by the selling stockholders.
The below table sets forth certain information with respect to each selling stockholder, including (a) the shares of our common stock beneficially owned by such selling stockholder prior to this offering, (b) the number of shares of our common stock being offered by such selling stockholder pursuant to this prospectus and (c) such selling stockholder’s beneficial ownership of our common stock after completion of this offering, assuming that all of the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus (but none of the other shares, if any, held by the selling stockholders) are sold to third parties in this offering.
The table is based on information supplied to us by the selling stockholders. Beneficial and percentage ownership is determined in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC, which is based on voting or investment power with respect to such shares, and this information does not necessarily indicate beneficial ownership for any other purpose. In accordance with SEC rules, in computing the number of shares beneficially owned by a selling stockholder, shares of common stock subject to derivative securities held by that selling stockholder that are currently exercisable or convertible, or that will be exercisable or convertible within 60 days after July 14, 2023, are deemed outstanding. Such shares, however, are not deemed outstanding for the purposes of computing the percentage ownership of any other selling stockholder. Each selling stockholder’s percentage ownership after this offering is based on 5,526,481 shares of our common stock outstanding as of July 10, 2023.
The selling stockholders may sell all, some or none of their shares of common stock covered by this prospectus. We do not know the number of such shares, if any, that will be offered for sale or otherwise disposed of by any of the selling stockholders. Furthermore, since the date on which we filed this prospectus, the selling stockholders may have sold, transferred or disposed of shares of common stock covered by this prospectus in transactions exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.

Multi-Tranche Private Placement
Stock Purchase Agreement
On May 15, 2023, we entered into a stock purchase agreement, as subsequently amended on July 6, 2023, referred to herein as the “Stock Purchase Agreement,” with EW Healthcare Partners, L.P. and EW Healthcare Partners-A, L.P., collectively referred to herein as the “Investors.” Under the Stock Purchase Agreement, we may issue and sell to the Investors up to $9,000,000 in shares of our senior preferred stock, in multiple tranches from time to time until December 31, 2025, subject to a minimum purchase amount of $500,000 in each tranche, referred to herein as the “Private Placement.” Sales of senior preferred stock in the Private Placement are purely discretionary and must be approved by both the Company and the Investors.
The initial sale in the Private Placement occurred on May 15, 2023, under which we sold to the Investors an aggregate of 280,899 shares of senior preferred stock for an aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000. The second sale in the Private Placement occurred on July 12, 2023, under which we sold to the Investors an aggregate of 500,000 shares of senior preferred stock for an aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000. We have used, and will continue to use, the net proceeds from the Private Placement, after the payment of transaction expenses, for general working capital purposes.
The purchase price for each share of senior preferred stock to be sold in the Private Placement, referred to herein as the “Purchase Price,” floats at a dollar amount equal to the product of (a) the lower of (i) the closing price of our common stock on the trading day immediately preceding the applicable pricing reference date and (ii) the average closing price of the common stock for the five trading days immediately preceding the applicable pricing reference date, multiplied by (b) two. Such purchase price constitutes the “Minimum Price” as defined in Nasdaq Stock Market LLC Rule 5635(d).
Subject to the terms and conditions of the Stock Purchase Agreement, we are required, upon the request of the Purchasers, to call one or more stockholder meetings for the purpose of eliminating any limitations on the convertibility of the senior preferred stock imposed by the rules and regulations of the Nasdaq Capital Market. On May 15, 2023, we secured agreements from certain of our investors, collectively holding 59.2% of our voting securities then issued and outstanding, to vote their shares in favor of eliminating any such limitations at any stockholder meeting called for such purpose.
The shares of senior preferred stock issued or issuable under the Stock Purchase Agreement, as well as the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the senior preferred stock, have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. We relied on, and will rely on, the private placement exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and by Rule 506 of Registration D, promulgated by the SEC, and on similar exemptions under applicable state laws.
The Stock Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement (as described below) contain customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, indemnification obligations of the Company, including for liabilities under the Securities Act, and other obligations of the parties. The representations, warranties, and covenants contained in such agreements were made only for purposes of such agreements and are made as of specific dates; are solely for the benefit of the parties (except as specifically set forth therein); may be subject to qualifications and limitations agreed upon by the parties in connection with negotiating the terms of the such agreements; and may be subject to standards of materiality and knowledge applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to the investors generally. Investors should not rely on such representations, warranties, and covenants, or any description thereof, as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Company.
Registration Rights Agreement
Contemporaneously with the execution of the Stock Purchase Agreement, we entered into a registration rights agreement with the Investors, referred to herein as the “Registration Rights Agreement,” under which we are required to file one or more demand shelf registration statements with respect to the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of senior preferred stock that has been sold under the Stock Purchase Agreement. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, we must file an initial registration statement for the offer and resale of the common stock underlying the senior preferred stock then issued no later than July 14, 2023, and cause such registration statement to be declared effective as promptly as possible, but in no event later than 90 days, thereafter. We have filed the registration statement on Form S-3, of which this prospectus forms a part,

to satisfy such initial registration rights granted to the Investors under the Registration Rights Agreement. We may be required to file additional registration statements in the future in connection with additional issuances of senior preferred stock in the Private Placement.
Certificate of Designations
On May 15, 2023, we filed with the Delaware Secretary of State a Certificate of Designations of with respect to the senior preferred stock, as subsequently amended on June 22, 2023, referred to herein as the “Certificate of Designations,” thereby creating the senior preferred stock. The Certificate of Designations authorizes the issuance of up to 3,000,000 shares of senior preferred stock.
The senior preferred stock is convertible into shares of common stock on a 1-for-2.6667 basis at the option of (a) the Investors at any time or (b) the Company within 30 days following the date on which the 30-day volume-weighted average price of the common stock exceeds the product of (i) the Purchase Price for the shares of senior preferred stock to be converted, multiplied by (ii) 2.75.
Each share of senior preferred stock is entitled to participate in dividends and other non-liquidating distributions (if, as and when declared by our board of directors) on an as-converted basis, pari passu with the common stock and our voting convertible preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share, referred to herein as the “junior preferred stock.”
Each share of senior preferred stock carries a liquidation preference, senior to the common stock and junior preferred stock, in an amount equal to the product of the Purchase Price for such share, multiplied by 2.50.
The Certificate of Designations provides that, while the senior preferred stock is outstanding, but not later than December 31, 2025, the holders of senior preferred stock, which includes the Investors and any of their affiliates holding senior preferred stock, have the right to exchange their shares of senior preferred stock under certain conditions if we issue or sell other securities that such holders of senior preferred stock reasonably believe contain more favorable terms, taken as a whole.
The senior preferred stock has an aggregate number of votes equal to the product of (a) the quotient of (i) the aggregate purchase price paid under the Stock Purchase Agreement for all shares of senior preferred stock issued and outstanding as of such time, divided by (ii) the highest purchase price paid by a holder for a share of senior preferred stock prior to or as of such time, multiplied by (b) two. Such formula ensures that no share of senior preferred stock will ever have more than two votes per share, with such number of votes subject to reduction (but not increase) depending on the pricing of future sales of senior preferred stock in the Private Placement. The senior preferred stock votes with the Company’s common stock on all matters submitted to holders of common stock and does not vote as a separate class.
In addition to the above-referenced voting rights, so long as any shares of senior preferred stock are outstanding, we will not, without the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then outstanding shares of the senior preferred stock, (a) increase the authorized number of shares of senior preferred stock; (b) enter any agreement, contract or understanding or otherwise incur any obligation which by its terms would violate or be in conflict in any material respect with, or significantly and adversely affect, the powers, rights or preferences of the senior preferred stock designated hereunder; (c) amend our certificate of incorporation or bylaws, if such amendment would significantly and adversely alter, change or affect the powers, preferences or rights of the holders of senior preferred stock; (d) redeem, repurchase or declare or pay any dividend or other distribution on our capital stock, subject to customary exceptions; or (e) amend or waive any provision of the Certificate of Designations applicable to the holders or the senior preferred stock.

The foregoing descriptions of the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement and the Certificate of Designations do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full texts of the Certificate of Designations, the Stock Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement, copies of which are filed as exhibits to the registration statement on Form S-3, of which this prospectus forms a part.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION
We are registering the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus on behalf of the selling stockholders. All costs, expenses and fees connected with the registration of such shares of common stock will be borne by us. Any brokerage commissions and similar expenses connected with selling such shares of common stock will be borne by the selling stockholders. The selling stockholders may offer and sell such shares of common stock from time to time in one or more transactions. As used in this prospectus, the term “selling stockholders” includes pledgees, donees, transferees and other successors-in-interest who may acquire such shares of common stock through a pledge, gift, partnership distribution or other non-sale related transfer from the selling stockholders. The selling stockholders will act independently of the Company in making decisions with respect to the timing, manner and size of each sale. These transactions include:
in “at the market offerings” within the meaning of Rule 415(a)(4) under the Securities Act, to or through a market maker or into an existing trading market, on an exchange or otherwise;
directly to a limited number of purchasers or to a single purchaser;
through agents;
by delayed delivery contracts or by remarketing firms;
ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker solicits purchasers;
purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its own account pursuant to this prospectus;
exchange or over-the-counter distributions in accordance with the rules of the exchange or other market;
block trades in which the broker-dealer attempts to sell the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction, or in crosses, in which the same broker acts as agent on both sides of the trade;
transactions in options, swaps or other derivatives that may or may not be listed on an exchange;
through distributions by a selling stockholder or its successors in interest to its members, general or limited partners or stockholders (or their respective members, general or limited partners or stockholders);
a combination of any such method of sale; or
any other method permitted pursuant to applicable law.
In connection with distributions of the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus or otherwise, the selling stockholders may:
sell such shares of common stock:
in one or more transactions at a fixed price or prices, which may be changed from time to time;
at market prices prevailing at the times of sale;
at prices related to such prevailing market prices; or
at negotiated prices;
sell such shares of common stock:
on a national securities exchange;
in the over-the-counter market; or
in transactions otherwise than on an exchange or in the over-the-counter market, or in combination;
enter into option or other transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions which require the delivery to them of the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus, which they may in turn resell; and
pledge the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus to broker-dealers or other financial institutions, which, upon a default, they may in turn resell.
11

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The selling stockholders may also resell all or a portion of the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus in open market transactions in reliance upon Rule 144 under the Securities Act, as permitted by that rule, Section 4(a)(1) under the Securities Act, if available, or any other exemption from the registration requirements that become available, rather than under this prospectus.
If underwriters are used in the sale of any shares of common stock covered by this prospectus, such shares of common stock will be acquired by the underwriters for their own account and may be resold from time to time in one or more transactions described above. Shares of common stock covered by this prospectus may be either offered to the public through underwriting syndicates represented by managing underwriters or directly by underwriters. We may use underwriters with whom we have a material relationship. As applicable, we will describe in each accompanying prospectus supplement the name of the underwriter(s) and the nature of any such relationship(s).
The shares of common stock covered by this prospectus may be sold directly or through agents designated from time to time. We will name any agent involved in the offering and sale of such shares and we will describe any commissions paid to the agent in the prospectus supplement. Unless the prospectus supplement states otherwise, the agent will act on a best-efforts basis for the period of its appointment.
Agents may be entitled to indemnification by us against certain civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or to contribution with respect to payments made by the agents, under agreements between us and the agents.
Agents may receive compensation in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from us or our purchasers, as their agents in connection with the sale of securities. These agents may be considered to be underwriters under the Securities Act. As a result, discounts, commissions or profits on resale received by the agents may be treated as underwriting discounts and commissions. Each accompanying prospectus supplement will identify any such agent and describe any compensation received by them from us.
In connection with sales of shares of common stock covered by this prospectus, the selling stockholders may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions, which may in turn engage in short sales of such shares of common stock in the course of hedging in positions they assume. The selling stockholders may also sell the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus short and the selling stockholders may deliver shares of common stock to close out short positions and to return borrowed shares of common stock in connection with such short sales. The selling stockholders may also loan or pledge shares of common stock covered by this prospectus to broker-dealers that in turn may sell such shares of common stock, to the extent permitted by applicable law. The selling stockholders may also enter into option or other transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions or the creation of one or more derivative securities which require the delivery to such broker-dealer or other financial institution of shares of common stock covered by this prospectus, which shares of common stock such broker-dealer or other financial institution may resell pursuant to this prospectus (as supplemented or amended to reflect such transaction).
The selling stockholders may, from time to time, pledge or grant a security interest in some or all of the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus owned by them and, if they default in the performance of their secured obligations, the pledgees or secured parties may offer and sell such shares of common stock from time to time pursuant to this prospectus or any amendment to this prospectus under Rule 424(b)(3) or other applicable provision of the Securities Act, amending, if necessary, the list of selling stockholders to include the pledgee, transferee or other successors in interest as selling stockholders under this prospectus. The selling stockholders may also transfer and donate shares of common stock covered by this prospectus in other circumstances in which case the transferees, donees, pledgees or other successors in interest will be the selling beneficial owners for purposes of this prospectus.
A selling stockholder that is an entity may elect to make an in-kind distribution of shares of common stock covered by this prospectus to its members, general or limited partners or stockholders pursuant to the registration statement on Form S-3, of which this prospectus forms a part, by delivering a prospectus. To the extent that such members, general or limited partners or stockholders are not affiliates of ours, such members, partners or stockholders would thereby receive freely tradable shares of common stock pursuant to the distribution through a registration statement. Additionally, to the extent that entities, members, partners or stockholders are affiliates of ours received shares in any such distribution, such affiliates will also be selling stockholders and will be entitled to sell such shares pursuant to this prospectus.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Agents who may become involved in the sale of shares of common stock covered by this prospectus may engage in transactions with, and perform other services for, us in the ordinary course of their business for which they receive compensation.
In effecting sales, the selling stockholders may engage broker-dealers or agents, who may in turn arrange for other broker-dealers to participate. Broker-dealers or agents may receive commissions, discounts or concessions from the selling stockholders and/or from the purchasers of shares of common stock covered by this prospectus for whom the broker-dealers may act as agents or to whom they sell as principal, or both. The compensation to a particular broker-dealer may be in excess of customary commissions. To our knowledge, there is currently no plan, arrangement or understanding between any selling stockholders and any broker-dealer or agent regarding the sale of any shares of common stock by the selling stockholders.
The selling stockholders, any broker-dealers or agents and any participating broker-dealers that act in connection with the sale of the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus may be “underwriters” under the Securities Act with respect to those shares of common stock and will be subject to the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act. Any profit that the selling stockholders realize, and any compensation that any broker-dealer or agent may receive in connection with any sale, including any profit realized on resale of such shares of common stock acquired as principal, may constitute underwriting discounts and commissions. If the selling stockholders are deemed to be underwriters, the selling stockholders may be subject to certain liabilities under statutes including, but not limited to, Section 11, 12 and 17 of the Securities Act and Section 10(b) and Rule 10b-5 under the Exchange Act.
The securities laws of some states may require the selling stockholders to sell the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus in those states only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. These laws may also require that we register or qualify such shares of common stock for sale in those states unless an exemption from registration and qualification is available and the selling stockholders and we comply with that exemption. In addition, the anti-manipulation rules of Regulation M under the Exchange Act may apply to sales of shares of common stock in the market and to the activities of the selling stockholders and their affiliates. Regulation M may restrict the ability of any person engaged in the distribution of shares of common stock to engage in market-making activities with respect to such shares of common stock. All of the foregoing may affect the marketability of the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus and the ability of any person to engage in market-making activities with respect to such shares.
If any selling stockholder notifies us that he has entered into any material arrangement with a broker-dealer for the sale of shares of common stock covered by this prospectus through a block trade, special offering, exchange distribution, over-the-counter distribution or secondary distribution, or a purchase by a broker or dealer, we will file any necessary supplement to this prospectus to disclose:
the number of shares of common stock involved in the arrangement;
the terms of the arrangement, including the names of any underwriters, dealers or agents who purchase such shares of common stock, as required;
the proposed selling price to the public;
any discount, commission or other underwriting compensation;
the place and time of delivery for the shares of common stock being sold;
any discount, commission or concession allowed, reallowed or paid to any dealers; and
any other material terms of the distribution of the shares of common stock.
In addition, if the selling stockholder notifies us that a donee, pledgee, transferee or other successor-in-interest of the selling stockholder intends to sell any shares of common stock covered by this prospectus, we will file an amendment to the registration statement on Form S-3, of which this prospectus forms a part, or a supplement to this prospectus, if required.

Indemnification of Directors and Officers
Subsection (a) of Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, empowers a corporation to indemnify any person who was or is a party or who is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of the corporation) by reason of the fact that the person is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if the person acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe the person’s conduct was unlawful.
Subsection (b) of Section 145 empowers a corporation to indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that the person acted in any of the capacities set forth above, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit if the person acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, except that no indemnification shall be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be liable to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the Court of Chancery or the court in which such action or suit was brought shall determine upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses which the Court of Chancery or such other court shall deem proper.
Section 145 further provides that to the extent a director or officer of a corporation has been successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to in subsections (a) and (b) of Section 145, or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, such person shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection therewith; that indemnification provided for by Section 145 shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which the indemnified party may be entitled; and the indemnification provided for by Section 145 shall, unless otherwise provided when authorized or ratified, continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of such person’s heirs, executors and administrators. Section 145 also empowers the corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against any liability asserted against such person and incurred by such person in any such capacity, or arising out of his status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such liabilities under Section 145.
Section 102(b)(7) of the Delaware General Corporation Law provides that a corporation’s certificate of incorporation may contain a provision eliminating or limiting the personal liability of a director to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, provided that
II-1

TABLE OF CONTENTS

such provision shall not eliminate or limit the liability of a director (a) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (b) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (c) under Section 174 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, or (d) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.
Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and our second amended and restated bylaws provide for the indemnification provisions described above and elsewhere herein. We have entered into separate indemnification agreements with our directors and officers which may be broader than the specific indemnification provisions contained in the Delaware General Corporation Law. These indemnification agreements generally require us, among other things, to indemnify our officers and directors against liabilities that may arise by reason of their status or service as directors or officers, other than liabilities arising from willful misconduct. These indemnification agreements also generally require us to advance any expenses incurred by the directors or officers as a result of any proceeding against them as to which they could be indemnified. In addition, we have purchased a policy of directors’ and officers’ liability insurance that insures our directors and officers against the cost of defense, settlement or payment of a judgment in some circumstances. These indemnification provisions and the indemnification agreements may be sufficiently broad to permit indemnification of our officers and directors for liabilities, including reimbursement of expenses incurred, arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
Any underwriting agreement or distribution agreement that the registrant enters into with any underwriters or agents involved in the offering or sale of any securities registered hereby may require such underwriters or dealers to indemnify the registrant, some or all of its directors and officers and its controlling persons, if any, for specified liabilities, which may include liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Item 17.
Undertakings
The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:
(1)
To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:
(i)
To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;
(ii)
To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in the volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and
(iii)
To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;
provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i), (a)(1)(ii), and (a)(1)(iii) above do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the SEC by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is a part of the registration statement.
(2)
That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(3)
To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.
(4)
That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser:
(i)
Each prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and
(i)
Each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5), or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii), or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by Section 10(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which that prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date.

That, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the undersigned registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

Re:          Registration Statement on Form S-3
 
Ladies and Gentlemen:
 
We have acted as counsel to Venus Concept Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), in connection with a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (the “Registration Statement”) filed by the Company with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Registration Statement relates to the offer and sale by certain selling stockholders of up to 2,082,426 shares of common stock, $0.0001 par value per share, of the Company (the “Common Shares”) issuable upon the conversion of outstanding shares of senior convertible preferred stock, $0.0001 par value per share, of Company (the “Preferred Shares”) issued to the selling stockholders in private placements that closed on May 15, 2023 and July 12, 2023.
 
We have examined such documents and reviewed such questions of law as we have considered necessary and appropriate for the purposes of our opinions set forth below. In rendering our opinions, we have assumed the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals, the genuineness of all signatures and the conformity to authentic originals of all documents submitted to us as copies. We have also assumed the legal capacity for all purposes relevant hereto of all natural persons and, with respect to all parties to agreements or instruments relevant hereto other than the Company, that such parties had the requisite power and authority (corporate or otherwise) to execute, deliver and perform such agreements or instruments, that such agreements or instruments have been duly authorized by all requisite action (corporate or otherwise), executed and delivered by such parties and that such agreements or instruments are the valid, binding and enforceable obligations of such parties. As to questions of fact material to our opinions, we have relied upon certificates of officers of the Company and of public officials. We have assumed that the Common Shares will be sold as described in the Registration Statement.
 
Based on the foregoing, we are of the opinion that the Common Shares, upon the conversion of the Preferred Shares pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in the Certificate of Designations for the Preferred Shares, and when evidence of the issuance thereof is duly recorded in the Company’s books and records, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.
 
Our opinions expressed above are limited to Delaware General Corporation Law and the federal laws of the United States of America.
 
We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement, and to the reference to our firm under the heading “Legal Matters” in the prospectus constituting part of the Registration Statement. In giving this consent, we do not admit that we are within the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act or the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder.


 
 Very truly yours,
 
 
 
 /s/ Dorsey & Whitney LLP
