Where do you start with damage like that.

1 Duplicated image.
2 Applied dust and scratches filter to duplicate layer.
3 Changed blend mode to lighten - this got rid of all the tiny black specks.
4 Flattened image then used healing brush with small radius, not aligned, this enabled me to evenually get a

decent area to sample for cloning etc. (This helped with the smaller lighter blemishes)
5 Heal heal heal heal heal heal heal heal heal heal heal heal heal............................
6 Used Dodge and Burn to highlight areas after healing
7 Copied her to new layer then defringed to clean up edges
8 Put Gradient in as a background
9 Added noise to soften the effect of all that healing
10 Adjusted levels of top layer, flattened and saved.

I think my healing brush needs new bristles after all that work.

Very nice restore. Skin, blouse and bg look great. Maybe eyebrows could be darkened/evened out?
