scars get worse with age

Is it just me or did anyone notice that their scars getting worse with age?  I guess I don't remember how my face progressed after finishing accutane at 23. I look back at my old photos 24-26 years old I don't see any scars, I know I had them but I can't detect them on any photographs. At around Age 28 I start seeing this really sunken in skin and then currently at 29 all of pictures you can clearly see my scarring at most angles. Am I going crazy? Are cameras getting more HD ? Is it collegen loss I am only 29 not 49 ? what's happening?

As you age, your body makes less collagen, as well as facial fat loss. Acne scars become more noticeable and apparent due to this.
