How to prevent scars to form

Hi I'd like to know how I can prevent that a pimple leave a scar.I sometimes get cysts sometimes very big ones,and they often leave a scar,some of them very deep scars.What can I use to prevent this?I try to heal the cyst as fast as possible,I apply ice to reduce inflammation,salycilic acid peels,retin-A or BP.I sometrimes apply CP serum,they say it can heal faster and prevent scars...

What do you think?

I use tea tree oil twice a day and a little CP Serum once a day. This regimen reduces inflammation and scarring for me. I would stay clear of BP if I were you, as it does little for cysts except irritate them.

Tea tree oil penetrates deeper and kills bacteria. It always shrinks my cysts. Don't know about ice.

I just got a cyst on my neck four days ago, and have been dosing it with topical antibiotic (clindamycin) twice per day, 0.1% Retin-A Micro once per day and washing twice per day with Rosanil sulfur cleanser, and it is almost gone already!
