Shaving isnt enough to cause scarring acne, it can cause irritation of the skin which I suppose in theory could block your pores, but this would result in minimal acne to be honest. I've had a few shaving rashes come up in the past like little red bumps but usually they've gone after a few days and its always been where my stubble grows at a slightly different angle to the rest of it. An electric razor will leave you with virtually no irritation, so your face will probably not look as red, you wont get as good a shave from any electric razor as you would from a wet shave though, but it depends on how thick your stubble.
