Broke the skin on my cheek squeezing a pimple - will it scar?

Recommended Posts

I had a very small headless pimple on my cheek and pinched it with my nails to make a hole to get the stuff out. Nothing came out but it made a small scab.

Yesterday the small scab was raised up and I was able to squeeze some hard white puss out of it. It has now scabbed up again.

I get indented pitted acne scars easily from having picked and squeezed at acne over the years. As this was quite a superficial pimple will it scar?
