Did you ever want to get a botox treatment but you thought that there was too much hassle involved? That is all changed now, thanks to Dr. Mark McKenna and his new company, OVME.
Dr. Mark McKenna studied at Tulane Medical School, but he decided to go into real estate instead of opening a private medical practice. He was successful, but after Hurricane Katrina struck, he lost all that he had. He started and sold new businesses, including a fitness and gym chain. He is now working on OVME.
This is something that is entirely new and exciting. Instead of having to visit a doctor or plastic surgeon, you can get a botox call to your house. The app will allow anyone across the country to order a botox call. The botox will be administered by freelancers who are trained and certified. The company will dedicate itself to high quality and the same kind of user experience across the board. This way, users all over the country will be able to get botox treatments that are associated with a country-wide brand.
In an interview with IdeaMensch, as well as in another interview with Forbes Magazine, Dr. Mark McKenna said that the idea for OVME came to him after he was working in the medical aesthetics industry for ten years. He realized that the botox industry did not have a streamlined process for getting botox treatments from a trusted provider. You had to go to individual doctors and plastic surgeons, and each one was different. With OVME, you can get an experience that is similar to Uber, only in a different industry.
Dr. Mark McKenna said that he made a lot of money in real estate, but that after Hurricane Katrina, he was left with nothing. He ended up starting Shapemed, which is a company that he eventually sold for a lot of money. He said that the decline of smoking in the United States is one trend that excites him. He also said that he reads a lot of books and that it helps him be a better entrepreneur.
Some people think that bone regeneration using stem cell therapy is an easy process to initiate. After all, stem cell
health benefits and storage options are common topics in healthcare. A realistic look at regenerative medicine shows a lot of potential, but very few real advancements in current day treatment.
Some hospitals may be taking advantage of desperate patients, offering the latest in treatments that are untested, sometimes making things worse.

The problem is not the procedure, which has been done by Dr. Clokie with success, but the space needed for the study and implementation of the regeneration surgery and the costs to the patient.
This is not to say that there has not been progress on the subject of regeneration. Just this year, a chip has been created that can turn on type of cell into one that is needed for healing.
Dr. Cameron Clokie, head of oral and maxillofacial surgery for the University of Toronto, believes that this type of medicine can further patient’s quality of life, but admits that the procedures are not cheap nor covered by insurance.
Dr. Clokie studied under Dr. Marshall Urist for four years. At the time Dr. Urist was working with the ingredient that makes regeneration possible, bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) a protein needed to kick-start bone growth.
Dr. Clokie has been working with BMP used in a gel putty that hardens when warmed up. This gel is shaped into the bone needed and surgically implanted into the patient. The gel/BMP mixture is sometimes held in place with a rod. The gel will disintegrate as the bone starts growing in.
Dr. Clokie has been working with implanting BMP into goat embryos so that the BMP can be grown and harvested through the goat milk being produced.
