This is Age-Reduction Retouching in 4K

Here’s a video that may blow your mind. Los Angeles-based digital compositor and beauty artist Rousselos Aravantinos made this short video showing the digital age reduction retouching he can do on a 4K video. He’s able to make an older woman realistically look like she’s decades younger.

“I experimented with new techniques,” says Aravantinos, a Fulbright alumnus. “The goal was to preserve more fine details of the skin texture but also not to alter the face dramatically.”

Aravantinos says he’s studying human anatomy to increase the realism of his work. An earlier age-reduction retouching test of his went viral back in 2015, but that video was both lower resolution and less realistic.
