You can use Digital Photo Professional is a Canon Software to manage adjust and covert the Raw files, You have curves, white balance, sharpening and batch process to develop large quantities of files.
You can use AdobeCameraRaw is a Photoshop plug-in, I´m sure that you are using it because if you open a raw file in Photoshop CameraRaw opens.
Adobe develop a new software with the base of camera raw calls Photoshop Lightroom a very complete software not only to develop the files, you can index, presentations, contac sheets and web catalogues. It is amazing but is the version 1 needs to improve in some areas.

I think I'm getting there. Instead of using the two Curves layers or the 50% gray layer method it seems to be working best for this image to use two blank layers. One for lighten using a white brush (20% opacity and 100% fill in layers palette and 2% brush flow). And one for darken using skin tone colored brush (40% opacity and 100% fill in layers palette and 2% brush flow). This recipe came about with A LOT of trial and error. By sampling the skin tone for the dark color instead of using black or grey I don't get the blackish dots I was getting when I tried to darken. I've got a long way to go still, because the model's complexion is sort of rough, but I think I can get there now.

Thanks everyone for your help!
