Dr. Mark McKenna got his MD at Tulane School of Medicine. He graduated in 1999. Before leaving the school, he realized it was hard to make a lot of money as a doctor. After graduation, he decided not to stick to medical practice and instead went ahead to venture into the Real Estate market of New Orleans.
However, in 2005 he lost millions when Hurricane Katrina struck. He recollected the remains of his company but dissolved it later and decided to relocate to Atlanta where he opened ShapeMed. It had a chain of offices that provided cosmetic and beauty treatments like laser hair removal, Botox injections and counseling sessions on fitness and nutrition.
In 2015 Dr. Mark McKenna sold his company to a big box gym chain, lifetime fitness where he afterward joined the staff. After a year, Lifetime was bought by private equity, and Dr. McKenna quit. He is currently 43 and is working on opening a new company new early next year named ‘OVME’.
He aims to create a countrywide chain of medical cosmetic offices along with an application that will act as an uber for Botox patients. The residents of Atlanta are eagerly waiting for the medical aesthetic experience. OVME will feature four private luxury treatment rooms along with a separate office for consultations.
For Dr. Mark McKenna OVME is a product of the combination of medical aesthetics and technology. He hopes to help the Atlanta residents discover their true selves. Dr. Mark McKenna has become famous for his advocacy for his patients along with the aim to reduce the risks by ensuring the invasive procedures are as minimal as possible.
