I appreciate that the ON1 development team is working hard to stay competitive with other products and surpass them when practical. For AI based face enhancement, however, other companies have a significant head start. The very latest ON1 release with Resize > Face Recovery is a step in the right direction, but even the free-to-use product Picwish generates very noticeably better results. Not perfect, but results are more 'believable' when the person viewing really knows the original subject. Mouth shape, teeth size, teeth number and position, eye shape, hair details, and wrinkles are all important.
I don't know how much of results are the recovery/regenerate routines themselves, or the training database fed into such routines. I don't know whether large portions of code are open-source nor do I know licensing costs/restrictions. I think ON1 might be able to surge ahead if they could acquire AI technology through partnership with existing firms who are further along than ON1.
