Scarring question

Recommended Posts

Are there only certain kinds of acne that scar? I remember when I was younger before I went on my first course of accutane, I'd pop every pimple I had. For some reason I don't have any scarring from it. Just curious if it has to be cystic to scar or if some people just don't scar from acne.

Maybe I just haven't inspected my face close enough to see if I have any scars? Or maybe the pimples that I have fading right now will leave scars? Hopefully not.

Any type of acne can leave scarring. Some people naturally scar easily, and some don't - just as some people naturally get lots of acne and some don't. It just sux when you're one of those few people that get acne AND scar! :P:(
