Why/How do indented scars form?

How do they form... from what kind of acne...pimples,cysts etc?

and how can you prevent them.. thanks!

I'm unsure, I am trying to figure that out myself. I have hundreds of them on my cheeks. They can't even be hidden with make up unless I fill the little holes up with powder, which is a bad idea.

But do they form after a cyst has healed? or do they form because you pick at ur cysts? im so lost.

Im currently using differin and im worried it might leave indented scars :(

I've never had cysts and I still scarred. I think picking probably causes more scarring than healing, I assume if the cyst just healed on it's own it it would leave hyperpigmentation and least likely to leave an indent. I might end up. I think my scars formed because I picked A LOT. My acne that healed naturally never left scars.
