blotchy skin

For some reason I've reached a dead - end with this restoration. I can't seem to smooth the skin sufficiently while maintaining sharpness.
Also, I burned the hat a little , and when printed, I get this really ugly blue tone only in the burned area.
I would love to be able to list the steps I've taken to get this far, but I've worked on it off and on for several days and haven't kept up with it.
Any help appreciated!

Thanks -
I don't have Neat Image, but it looks like a good starting point.

Have you tried using a layer mask?
If you put the soft version (with a mask) over the original. you can selectively "paint" needed areas, so that you're just applying the smoothing were need.

Download Demo version of Neat Image here. http://www.neatimage.com/download.html

It is free and probably all you will ever need.

WoW - Neat Image.
Now I have something else to distract me for the weekend!
Here is the result I got on the first try before reading the instructions. (I tend to be impatient and just jump right in, playing with the sliders).
I know it's exaggerated, I plan to learn to use it correctly in the next few days.
As someone who can remember not so long ago doing all of my restorations the traditional way, this filter is very impressive.

I plan on trying the layer mask also, as suggested.
Thanks for all of your help!

Anyone know how Neat Image compares to Nik Multimedia's Dfine or have experience with Dfine?

They also offer free demos at www. nikmultimedia.com/focus

They also have a filter just for sharpening, but it is expensive..
