Sounds to me that the SA has normalized your skin to a degree and in the process is now revealing scars you weren't able to see before.

If you look at before and after pics of cystic acne sufferers you will be able to see what i'm talking about. Their scars were present but do to swelling and outbreak those scars were concealed. Now that their cystic acne is under control/normalized the scarring is apparent.

I don't think it would be scars, probably just post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I guess it would depend on the acne you had (inflammatory or non-inflammatory). Salicylic acid should actually help with scars, since it is an acid. If you don't like them, ACV helped me out a TON.
