38 SEPTEMBER 2014 | Med Esthetics By Inga Hansen As interest in autologous cosmetic procedures soars, physicians zero in on the most promising offerings.

We spoke with plastic surgeons and dermatologists about some of the most highly publicized biological products and procedures to determine where—and if—they are fi nding a lasting place in medical aesthetics practices. © CULTURA SCIENCE/KAPE SCHMIDT/GETTY IMAGES Autolo ous Medicine
