This tutorial was sent by friend of mine BCool. This effect is perfect for wrinkle, birth mark and freckles removal. Using a Healing Brush tool in Adobe Photoshop makes it easy and fun. You couldn't find this tool in old versions of this program by the way. This technique is widely used for dating websites and rejuvenation of some photos.

Ok, let's open a picture with wrinkles:

Press Ctrl+J on your keyboard to duplicate layer. Or choose Layer-Duplicate Layer.

Now hold Alt on your keyboard and at the same time left click on some smooth area of a skin near a wrinkle that you want to remove. It's like taking a sample of a smooth skin for wrinkle removal.

Release Alt and start to click and drag on nearest wrinkles. Cross shows where the skin samle is taken from. If you do something too much, step backward by pressing Alt+Ctrl+Z on your keyboard.
