The video is from Natalie (http://nienna1990.deviantart.com/journal/28623923/) and no, she didn't use frequency separation.
As Murray said, it's just a technique to speed up your workflow, if it isn't necessary, you don't have to use it.

Thank you for your reply. I don't actually use "separation frequnecy" method. I do very little healing in my new work flow, the past 3 images that I have done. Most of the skin work is done with D&B. The key for me is the "tools" layers that converts the image to a very contrasty B&W so I can see all the imperfections in the skin. I change the contrast of this "tool" by adjusting the curve so I can see other areas of the skin, such as the dark shadows though out my the skin work.
I do love the results. I get the B&W contrasty image with the "tool" layer ON is flaw less, so when you turn the "tool" layer off, the skin is just perfect with all of its textures.
One questions is. it can take me about 3 hours to do the face alone, especially the model that I posted in this thread. Is this normal or am I am too slow or doing something wrong???

3 hours on the skin is about normal. Once you are done with the skin, everything else is a lot quicker.

Thank You. I should read my postings before I actually post them. I type really fast and change sentences at times and result can be sentences that don't make sense or have serious spelling or grammar errors. Sorry about that.
