How do rolling wave-like linear scars develop from acne?

I always wondered this. How does linear rolling scarring develop from a zit? Shouldn't this kind of scarring always be saucer shape / pitted?

Example; http://z.hubpages.com/u/251365_f260.jpg (couldn't find a better one)

After my accutane course I had red marks in the shape of linear waves across my cheek, a few months after that these redmarks got somewhat indented. Makes me wonder really, how did I get this kind of scarring when the initial injury wasn't the same shape?
