Is there anyway that you might be able to take the picture in natural light so the flash doesn't go off. Maybe during the day with the window open and the picture taken from another angle would help. I am just guessing. I am sure there is probably someone on here that can tell you more than I can.

I would definitely try a reshoot if you have the time...you can lighten up the darker areas, but there's no getting the detail back in the spots that are blown...it's much easier to fix it if it's a bit underexposed then when it's overexposed.

Not a great improvement, but it's a fair attempt I think. I used a USM, brightened in curves, then erased back her face with the history brush, increased contrast, then used the burn brush around the edges. I don't know if this is what you were looking for or not.
