Greatness comes in many different forms as well as come in many different facets in life. If you know anything about medical aesthetics, then you’re aware of all the advanced breakthroughs in technology. In order to use this technology, you will need the training that accompanies the usage of such innovative products. Working in the medical field requires full-attention or you could have a huge lawsuit on your hands. Mark McKenna, M.D., MBA, is a medical-aesthetics genius to some degree. The guy has up to 20 years of experience, and he has owned two of the most successful medical practices that specialize in this exclusive sector.
Dr. Mark McKenna is actually the son of a medical doctor. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from tree after all. He received his medical training from Tulane University Medical School, and he worked at his father’s practice for rive years. Unlike other medical professionals, McKenna had other plans in mind. While in college, he would moonlight at correctional facilities by providing physicals to the inmates. “I charged $50 per hour, and I invested every penny of it into real estate,” said McKenna. This man was investing into his future while he was in college and this demonstrates just how focused he was at a young age. While practicing medicine, McKenna was able to start a host of side-businesses, including:
- McKenna Venture Investments
Dr. Mark Mckenna’s real estate development firm, McKenna Venture Investments, was generating millions of dollars on an annual basis. McKenna was able to live a great lifestyle by holding onto a $500,000 salary. The next big thing for Dr. Mark McKenna was launched earlier in 2018. This medical practice offers elective-aesthetic procedures. OVME has taken the game to a completely different level, and it can literally transform someone’s life for the better via minimal-invasive procedures. Building the confidence of its customers/clients is the main goal and Dr. Mark McKenna is the architect for doing so.
Dr. Mark McKenna, although young, is a very successful physician and entrepreneur. His last business being an innovative company where you can now get a Botox job as easy as ordering a Lyft ride. The Company is called OVME and has recently opened its first location in Atlanta, Georgia. OVME provides a service that matches you with aestheticians and sends them right to your home. OVME also performs virtual consults.
Dr. Mark McKenna comes from a family of doctors on both sides, and that was what led him to go into the same field. He graduated from Tulane Medical School in 1999, but by that time he had another idea. Upon graduation, he went on to start a real estate business, but it crashed down unexpectedly after a long successful era. During the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster, he lost nearly everything. The successful business was worth nearly $5 million and most of the money was lost overnight. While a student, he worked part-time doing physical checks and much of the money he used to build the business came from his savings.
After real estate and before OVME
In 2007 and with a different plan he moved to Atlanta, GA and decided to start again with the money he had left. ShapeMed was born and he had started it with the minimal amount of money he had retained. ShapeMed provided treatments in the areas of Botox injections, laser hair removal, and weight counseling as well as nutrition. The company proved itself successful and was regarded as the top end aesthetic business in the area. Its several locations were acquired by Life Time Fitness Inc. in 2014 and Dr. Mark McKenna continued to work for the company for a few years. It was also during 2014 that he received formal education on business by completing an executive MBA in entrepreneurship.
Dr. Mark McKenna is happily married with children to model Gianine McKenna.
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.
