Meet the Team

Operating the best med spa in Houston requires a team of talented, exceptionally trained and experienced treatment providers and professional staff. Since Chris Bailey established Ovation® Med Spa nearly 15 years ago, it has grown into a destination for residents throughout the Greater Houston area (and beyond) who want the latest med spa treatments to help them look and feel their best.

Our Team Members

Chris Bailey, Founder and Owner

Chris Bailey, Founder and OwnerAfter spending about 15 years in corporate America, Chris found himself in LaGuardia Airport a couple of weeks before Christmas and realized that he didn’t want to be doing the same thing for the next 10 to 20 years. He started flipping through a copy of Entrepreneur magazine and some medical spa franchise opportunities caught his eye. After investing all of his savings and a year of his life researching the idea, he started a med spa franchise in 2006—only to have the franchisor go out of business 6 months later.

Undaunted, Chris got in touch with every successful medical aesthetic professional in the country who would talk to him to learn anything he could about running the business, which he renamed Ovation Med Spa. Over the next 15 years, Chris built a thriving practice with the vision of investing in the latest, proven technologies so he and his team could provide customized treatment solutions to their clients.

“My father always taught me to dream bigger dreams, think big, and believe we can do things beyond what we are doing today. He has always been an inspiration in my life.”

Chris has taken those words to heart in building Ovation Med Spa, which is ranked as one of the 8 Best Medical Spas in the country by The American Med Spa Association and has been named the Top Medical Spa in Middle America for 3 years in a row by Aesthetics Everything magazine. Many staff members have been with him since the beginning and clients return year after year because of the personalized attention they receive.

When Chris isn’t working, he loves to travel. In fact, he’s an instrument-rated private pilot and he enjoys flying friends and family around the country.
