Q&A – EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR FIRST TIME GETTING BOTOX
“A little over a month ago, I shared on Instagram that I got Botox for the first time. I was approached by the new OVME here in Atlanta to come in and try out of their services complimentary. They offer a variety of options, but I was most intrigued by Botox. So many of my friends do it and have for years with great results, I wanted to try it out for myself.”
“Frazier learned that her wish had been paid for by an Atlanta cosmetics company called OVME as part of a Make-A-Wish program that allows companies to adopt wishes, and fund them privately through donations.”
“He’s a doctor, but it has not been an easy road. Dr. Mark Mckenna gets candid about his personal obstacles, ShapeMed and how Hurricane Katrina changed everything. He also opens up about the events that lead to him founding OVME Aesthetics in Atlanta, Ga.”
Senior year is a time of change – the end of high school is near, college decisions are looming, and lasting memories with friends and classmates are made. For Kayla, it was no different. She loved art, reading, hanging out with friends, and she especially loved musical theatre. She was active in her school’s theatre department and hoped to study it in college. One doctor’s appointment, however, threatened to change those plans.
After experiencing abnormal pain in her chest, doctors found a tumor in between Kayla’s lungs in March 2017. She began treatment soon after her diagnosis to decrease the size of her tumor. She had chemotherapy every three weeks over the course of six months, and she slept at the hospital for three nights each time she received treatment. Kayla’s long-time love of musical theatre made her wish a no-brainer; she wanted to see her favorite Broadway shows in New York City.
When she arrived in the Big Apple, Kayla and her family spent the whole week exploring. They saw the Statue of Liberty, visited the Central Park Zoo and took in the breathtaking views atop the Empire State Building. Kayla fell in love with the city, especially after seeing Times Square at night. Her highlight, of course, was seeing not just one, but three Broadway shows – Anastasia, Dear Evan Hansen and Waitress. After each show, she got to go backstage and meet the cast. “Seeing these Broadway shows meant so much to me and meeting the people who inspire me and bring me joy was an absolutely amazing experience,” said Kayla. “Meeting the entire cast of ‘Waitress’ was unreal, and meeting the cast of ‘Anastasia’ was incredible because I’ve loved them for so long and actually getting to thank them in person for everything was amazing.”
Kayla’s wish furthered her love for musical theatre, and she plans to study it next year in college. She is currently in remission and is working on getting her driver’s license! Kayla is settling back into normal life, free of hospitals and treatment. Her wish was a monumental turning point. It motivated her to keep fighting and renewed her positive outlook on life.
Special thanks to Make-A-Wish Georgia for helping us grant this wish!
“Unlike other retailers, McKenna said most cities will be home to only one OVME. It is using an app, debuting in April, that will allow customers to book some services, such as Botox, at their home with an OVME medical professional. That will keep the chain’s overall brick-and-mortar footprint manageable, McKenna said.”
