Its most likely the degrunge technique http://retouchpro.com/tutorials/?m=show&id=213 but instead of using the highpass filter you replace it with this http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=439098

Re: Tonal range on legs? How to fix.

Inverting a high pass layer is technically blurring.

Unless you want to powder her legs or cover them in wax, don't do it. What you wanna do is separate frequencies to find that the tonal variations that you talk about are contained in the low pass layer. Don't be afraid of brush painting right on the low freq layer. Careful with the radius of separation though. You want as little color and as much texture as possible on the high freq layer. My guess is, for this image a radius of 3 to 5 pixels will do, given you are working on the full res.
