Hairy Chin and Deep Creases in Lips

I am working on a retouch from an image CMF posted (thanks CMF). I do not want to use any blurring.

I am getting really hung up on the deep creases in the lips and the chin hair. I have been using D&B and also tried cloning and have not yet been able to achieve a nice result. I'm hoping someone can guide me by showing what they can do with part of it and some specifics on brush, etc to get me unstuck. I'll gladly start from scratch on the original image but posted my latest in progress shot in the event you can see what I'm doing wrong by looking at it.

Thanks!

healing brush and d&b after. for a quicker result, go ahead and patch the whole area, then d&b. Clone is probably the last resort.

Re: Hairy Chin and Deep Creases in Lips

Thanks doodle. I think one of the things that I do not know about this image is with regard to the dark spots next to the hairs on the chin. I had been trying to both lighten those dark spots and darken the hairs and have them meet in the middle but now I wonder if maybe i should embrace those dark spots and make the light spots match. I did do some more searching and actually found another post with these same lips and examples of some end results. I'd like to see some other D&B results of those hairs on the chin if anyone has time.

This was done using a technique from MM, here's the link to the thread by Sean Baker: http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=439098 It's involves separating the frequency of the detail in the image, then working on the low and high separately. Works great!

Thanks Mike, I'll head over there and give this a try.

Thanks for your example too. Nice to see a visual finished result to aim towards.
