From EW : John Nelson worked on Rachael's two-minute appearance in 2049 for a year. "Digital humans are sort of like the holy grail -- they're really hard," says Nelson. "I knew it would be one of the hardest things I've done in my career. We had many challenges in this movie but this one was definitely the hardest one we did."
Rachel was rendered in RenderMan. Since her son was on the film as a production assistant, "Sean Young got to be on set while actress Loren Peta acted out the performance that would be the foundation for the effects work. And later, both Peta and Young spent a day in Budapest in facial motion-capture rigs, with both women performing Rachael’s scene in the film", according to reporting on io9.
Blade Runner 2049 : A young blade runner's discovery of a long-buried secret leads him to track down former blade runner Rick Deckard, who's been missing for thirty years.
