Everything is becoming more convenient for the customer, including non-invasive cosmetic procedures. This is one of the driving forces behind Dr. Mark McKenna’s company OVME located in Atlanta Georgia. While they may have only opened their doors a few months ago for their flagship location in the Buckhead area, they are already looking to expand across the United States. This expansion will not only be through beautiful brick and mortar retail locations but also through their free-lance physicians that can both be consulted with and hired through the OVME app that is still under development.
Calling OVME the Uber of the luxury cosmetic procedure industry, the app will allow patients to speak face to face via video chat with their physicians. This allows them to consult with medical practitioners about their procedures before they make their decision. The free-lance physicians that are available through Dr. Mark Mckenna’s app are not only available to perform the procedures at OVME’s facility, but also in the comfort of the patient’s office or home.
Dr. Mark Mckenna previously owned and founded the cosmetic procedure company ShapeMed that was later purchased by the Lifetime Fitness company. After the purchase, Shape Medical Wellness Centers opened retail locations in the Lifetime Fitness chain gyms. This created a very convenient option for many people who wanted to look their best. After Lifetime Fitness was sold to a different company, Dr. Mark Mckenna decided that it was time to leave the company and start his next project. This is when he came up with the idea for OVME.
OVME is the first of its kind to create their blend of technology and medicine to create the best experience for their customers. While convenience is certainly an important factor for Dr. Mark Mckenna’s company, luxury is also a main focus. Each of their procedure rooms is designed with the patient’s needs being at the forefront of importance. With OVME’s membership programs and attention to detail, they should continue to grow.
Founder and CEO of OVME, Dr. Mark McKenna is from New Orleans, LA and attended Tulane University where he earned his MD. After college Dr. McKenna who is licensed in Surgery and Medicine in both Florida and Georgia, started practicing medicine and also created the investment firm McKenna Venture Investments. Dr. McKenna’s investment firm was doing well until 2005 when Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, LA and destroyed much of the city including many of Dr. McKenna’s business interests. Dr. McKenna not willing to give up helped to rebuild New Orleans and helped to reconstruct low-moderate income housing to help the city rebound after such a devastating natural disaster. In 2007 Dr. Mark McKenna decided to move to Atlanta GA, and created a new medical practice called ShapeMed. In 2017 Dr. McKenna launched a new medical company that is taking a new approach to elective healthcare and is called OVME.

By 2014 Dr. Mark McKenna had established himself as both a medical doctor and an entrepreneur, but after selling ShapeMed he decided it was in his best interest to go back to school where he earned his executive MBA. Realizing it was never too late to learn, Dr. McKenna found his MBA coursework better prepared him to launch his latest business OVME. Dr. McKenna credits his parents with being great role models that helped him realize his ability to become a successful entrepreneur. In the new year Dr. McKenna is looking forward to his new venture and is excited to embark on a five-year growth plan that includes launching OVME in Atlanta GA, and Las Vegas NV. While Dr. Mark McKenna is excited with his current project, he is always full of ideas and looking to expand his business. One new trend is in crypto currency and Dr. McKenna stuck with the entrepreneur gene is not opposed to expanding his network and creating a way to bring new ideas like crypto currency to the general public.
