When done badly, retouching destroys your portrait. Every human face has "blemishes" - they add character to the face. If you remove every "blemish" the result is a totally characterless, unnatural, plastic-faced Barbie doll. Used sparingly and with real care it can enhance a portrait - just don't go too far.

Good retouching can indeed enhance a portrait. The trouble is that it is all too easy to make any face look bland, with the Barbie Doll look. Ask to see some examples of 'before and after' before you commit lots of money to retouching. But be warned that the 'before' examples may have had any defects magnified, so as to impress you as to how good the 'after' looks! All in all, maybe better to ask a freind who knows whatvto do to help you, and do it in front of your eyes, so that you can yell 'halt' when you want to.

It does wonders, but it has to be done professionally. Bad retouching can easily destroy a portrait and make it look fake.
