Duplicate, invert, change mode to Linear Light, high pass filter at 8.0 pixels (approx.), gaussian blur at about the same (?), add a hide all mask and apply to suit with a white brush.

You can learn to do that to a reasonable level of quality without spending too much time. When you talk about "high-end", it's important to note that this often means high resolution / highly revealing images combined with a long list of things to do other than basic smoothing. Just smoothing out unevenness on something like this shouldn't take an excessive amount of time.

Re: Patchy skin

I used selective curves adjustments on a low frequency layer.
