In March 2018, Buckhead, an uptown district of Atlanta, Georgia, welcomed a skin care medical facility OVME. This facility pronounced “of me.” focuses on skin care and dedicated to offering top quality, technology-based aesthetic services to the residents in the Atlanta area. Founder and CEO of OVME Dr. Mark McKenna strives to provide top-notch skin treatment at his 1500 square foot luxury facility to his patients. OVME includes secluded offices for individual consultations and four luxurious private rooms. Along with the investment of OVME in Atlanta, McKenna has plans on opening a chain of this facility nationwide as well as building an app for Botox patients that functions the same way as rideshare app, Uber. This app will provide patients with freelance practitioners who do house calls on demand and therefore an added convenience.
Licensed by the Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee Board of Examiners, New Orleans native, Dr. Mark McKenna received his medical training at the Tulane University Medical School. Upon graduation with his Doctor of Medicine and Master of Business Administration degrees, he started practicing medicine with his father while launching a real estate development firm called McKenna Venture Investments. Dr. Mark McKenna continued growing his ventures by acquiring Uptown Title, Inc. and Universal Mortgage Lending. When Hurricane Katrina destroyed homes and businesses in 2005, McKenna also lost his business investments in the area. Seeing the massive destruction in his community, he participated in the rebuilding of homes for low and middle-income area residents.
In 2007, Dr. Mark McKenna relocated Atlanta, Georgia and opened a cosmetic and wellness based practice chain called ShapeMed. This business chain focused on nutrition, weight management, hair removal, and Botox injections. In November 2014, ShapeMed sold to bix box gym chain called Lifetime Fitness, and McKenna served on the board as National Medical Director of Life Time Fitness Inc until 2016. In 2017, he founded the innovative aesthetic medical company OVME.
Dr. Mark McKenna and OVME presently partnered with the Make A Wish Foundation. This foundation helps children with life-threatening illnesses and their families by granting wishes to the children and easing the financial burden of families.
