Acne Victims are Helped with Makeovers, Lawsuits

Makeup artist Heidi Schulze can cover blemishes caused by acne. But Roche Pharmaceuticals, maker of Accutane, can't cover up the harmful side effects of its defective acne medication whose bowel injuries are leading to victims' successful lawsuits.

HOUSTON, TX, August 24, 2010 ( Hiding acne can be easy if you use the right makeup. Houston-based Heidi Schulze, one of America's top makeup artists, proves it in a new how-to video at, which transforms a self-conscious car saleswoman with adult acne into a drop-dead gorgeous top-model lookalike.

If only more acne sufferers had tried this approach. Instead they took Accutane, which cleared up their blemishes but also gave many users severe, lifelong and debilitating digestive disorders that often involved surgery. Now these victims are taking Accutane creator Roche Pharmaceuticals to court - and they're winning.

A 38-year-old Alabama software engineer who took Accutane in his 20s was finally forced to have his colon removed almost 15 years after taking the drug to treat a severe case of acne. In early 2010, a jury awarded him $25 million for his losses and suffering. Five other recent verdicts have pushed victims' awards to a total of $56 million, as juries found that Roche did not adequately warn consumers about the drug's risks.

Faced with such Accutane lawsuits and increased competition, Swiss-based Roche took Accutane off the market last year, after 27 years of sales that reaped billions in profits. But despite health hazards, generic Accutane remains available, sold as Claravis, Sotret and Amnesteem. Each has active ingredient Isotretinoin, as did Accutane.

Isotretinoin medications have been proven to cause an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis, or UC. Often such victims must have surgery - and many haven't suspected till now that their incurable condition was the result of taking an acne medication.

That's not to say Accutane hasn't done some good. More than 13 million people took Accutane during its 27 years on the market, and it permanently cleared up the pimples of 85 per cent of those with severe acne. But for too many, the health hazard trade-off has been severe.

A far better solution for acne sufferers is to try Schulze's makeup approach, which isn't disguised with heavy foundations and powder. Rather, the answer is a light, mineral-based product applied with a careful, deft touch in the right combination of colors. And this natural makeup doesn't look like makeup once it's applied.

"Most women with acne make the mistake of using concealers, as they are called, to cover pimples," Shulze said. "That cakes up the face, doesn't look natural, and since people with acne have oily skin, the makeup ends up sliding off anyway during the day. " The mineral product Schulze uses in the video has no oil, so it stays put, relieving self-conscious sufferers.

Meanwhile, acne sufferers should be wary of generic Accutane products, which remain available. For those persons, covering, not curing, may be the answer - especially since the "cure" can be so devastating.

Those who already tried Accutane instead and now face major surgery at least have an option. They can contact a defective drug lawyer and take their case to court - where juries so far are taking their side.

According to a recent KLAS report, "RIS in the Middle: The Integration Tug of War", RIS decisions are being pulled in three different directions ...
