How long do I have to wait to see if I have scars?

Recommended Posts

I've only had acne for about 9 months. It was severe Oct to Dec, but it is starting to get better. Now I have tons of PIH and I can't tell if I have rolling scars. In some lights, I can kinda see indentations, but most of the time I don't see anything. (I have to bend my head at the right angle and be in the right light to see them). Looking straight on and up close my skin looks completely smooth. When I look down or up at an angle, I can see them in the mirror.

My question is, how long after acne will I be able to know for sure if these are scars or just PIH and active acne?
