Dr. Mark McKenna – The Creator of OVME

Dr. Mark Mckenna has started a new retail medical aesthetic company available both online and out of a facility in Buckhead, Atlanta, called, OVME. Dr. Mckenna had a vision to create a business that entailed a chain of offices that can offer on-the-call Botox services that functioned more like Uber does for on-the-call driving services. OVME is that business. With this particular service, along with aesthetic enhancement retail products for sale and in-house aesthetic enhancement treatments, OVME has been doing quite well thus far since its opening in Buckhead this past March.

Dr. Mark Mckenna grew up among entrepreneurs. His dad started his own practice as a doctor and his mother owned her own publishing company. He would follow in his dad’s footsteps and go on to study at Tulsa University, where he would obtain his medical degree. He would return home in New Orleans to study medicine with his dad and would also moonlight as a physician at a local prison. With the money that he earned at the prison, he starts his own real estate company in which he would work with his dad on. The business would drive in many sales and reach a multi-million dollar worth. The business would get destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, unfortunately, but he would take his entrepreneurship spirit and make something from it.

In addition to Dr. Mark McKenna’s real estate business, he would move to Atlanta to rebuild. He would acquire a medical aesthetic business – more like what he is educated in – and also take this business to a multi-million dollar worth as well. He would later sell the business for $4.4 million to Lifetime Fitness Inc. With the money, he would pursue an idea that he had brewing in his mind for a while and so OVME was created.

OVME has opened its doors on March 1, 2018. It is located on Peachtree Rd. Its focus is on designs, technology and data that provides its patients the most unique experiences possible for their specific wants and needs in aesthetic enhancements. Some of the clinical services offered to patients are those related to minimally invasive procedures, such as injections of neurotoxins, Vivace microneedling, dermal fillers, testosterone replacement therapy, just to name a few. Besides these services, retail products are available for sale as well, such as skin care items. Through the clinical services and retail items for sale, OVME also makes Botox house calls as well.

Doe Deere And Lime Crime Makeup: Breaking All The Beauty Rules

Most of us have big dreams and plenty of passion to go along, but learning to find a niche in the world of business is usually the major challenge for most entrepreneurial newbies. Striking the right note does not come easy. Learn more: http://www.phillypurge.com/2017/06/05/finding-your-business-niche-like-doe-deere/

 

Russian-born businesswoman Doe Deere dabbled in a few favorite pursuits like fashion and joining a band before she founded Lime Crime. Establishing a makeup brand amongst the giant longtime leaders like Revlon and Maybelline was almost ridiculous to even attempt, but Doe Deere was fearless and had a different cosmetics idea in mind.

 

She spoke with PhillyPurge about her steady rise to the top in the e-commerce competitive beauty arena. Yes, the passion was certainly there for Doe Deere. In Russia, she grew up playing with makeup and enjoyed vivid cosmetics with a fantastical outlook on life. Unicorns, glitter, iridescence and other fun things became part of her world, and she applied them to Lime Crime makeup, launching the line in 2008 while living in New York City.

Doe Deere had learned to strike in a new area of makeup, one that most companies were ignoring. Lime Crime delivered glitz, glamour and kooky-beautiful makeup palettes that most people had never worn in public before. The giant brands were all about makeup that played safe; Lime Crime became the street brand, the bad a** kind that dared you to try some on.

 

These days, Lime Crime has become a social media darling with fans spanning the globe. Women and men, too, enjoy putting on bold, in-your-face lipsticks and eyeshadows that sometimes dazzle, sparkle and deliver the perfect fantasy. It’s modern makeup for people who break all the beauty rules and are redefining what is pretty. Learn more: http://thestoryexchange.org/doe-deere/

 

Eyeshadow shades that resembled bruised exotic fruits or lipsticks that boast shades of green, gray, purple, gold or peacock blue all reside in a Lime Crime world. The makeup is unique, refreshing and creating trends.

 

Doe Deere is hands-on with Lime Crime each day she heads to work. She’s in the lab with a chemist, at a board meeting, chatting with fans on social media or creating brand new makeup. She also wears her own cosmetics brand and knows what her customers are looking for.

 

Have a dream, plan it well, find that niche in the wall and dive in. That’s the Doe Deere way. Learn more: http://inspirery.com/doe-deere/
