Small breakouts that leave big scars

I had always considered my acne mild -- not because I didn't have a fair amount of it, it covers pretty much my entire cheeks -- but because actual pimples are always small. I either get papules that eventually become pustules or these weird inflamed bumps beneath the surface.. I would call them cysts but they are so small that I don't know if they really qualify. I only began aggressively treating my acne this year because all of a sudden these breakouts stopped healing and started leaving dark marks and even indents. I finally went on accutane a couple of months ago and of course this is exacerbating the situation... but what I'm asking is does anyone else get this? Small pimples that just WONT heal for long periods of time (sometimes months) and leave a lot of scarring?
