Glow for It, Houston: OVME Is Now Open

DESPITE QUARANTINES, FACE masks and inclement weather, aesthetic medical services are perhaps more popular than ever. In fact, according to reports, the pandemic has caused a boom in demand for plastic surgery, injectables and the like; dermatologists are seeing a record number of patients and mounting waitlists.


So perhaps it comes as little surprise that there's been a recent boom in medical spas and medical services in Houston. The latest national brand with a cult following to join the Houston ranks is OVME (pronounced "of me"), now open at the Centre in River Oaks (3021 Kirby Dr.). Beloved by influencers and celebrities alike, such as Tinsley Mortimer, Colin Egglesfield and Uche Nwosu, the brand hails from Chicago, and has in six other studios in cities across the U.S.

OVME is known for its luxurious medical services and techy approach to cosmetic services. For one, every single customer gets a skin analysis by VISIA, a state-of-the-art machine that captures UV photography and provides a complete assessment of sun damage, skin texture, wrinkles and more. "For OVME, it's all about providing our clients with superior cosmetic outcomes, every time," says Dr. Mark McKenna, founder and CEO of OVME. "I'm absolutely thrilled to bring OVME to Houston, one of the most vibrant, culturally diverse cities in America."

In true Texas fashion, the Houston flagship is the brand's largest location to date. The sleek, contemporary studio has 10 treatment rooms, including ones dedicated to laser procedures and hydration therapy. The brand's approach to medical spa services is focused on confidence-boosting natural and youthful results. Among the most popular offerings are Botox, derma fillers, laser resurfacing, photo facials, HydraFacials, and Vivace, a new machine offering the latest in radiofrequency microneedling. This minimally-invasive treatment stimulates the natural production of collagen and is shown to be effective in alleviating facial wrinkles, fine lines, and tightening and toning the face and neck.

OVME's skincare boutique features a curated roster of products from brands like SkinMedicaand Revision, along with OVME's own line of medical-grade products.

Says McKenna, "We believe the women and men of Houston are ready to experience OVME's brand of intentional, highly curated medical aesthetic products and services."
