How do we prevent acne marks???

Were all working on fixing the marks after acne, but how do we prevent those marks in the first place? I was interested in switching off of proactiv because im afraid that is causing my marks, either that or my second course of accutane, because I never had a mark left until I started these two methods. Presently, I still rarely break out but in the event that I do, it always leaves a mark, SO HOW DO I PREVENT THE MARKS IN THE FIRST PLACE???????????????????????????

Proactiv is supposed to DRY the pimples, but it also dries the skin. I've noticed that when I use proactiv, my pimples go from moist and pus-filled to dry and soon wrinkly. I think that when you just use the BP on the pimple, it dries up the skin, and not just the pimple. Which in turn causes your skin to turn a diff. color, and to peel. if you follow the proactiv with a moisturizer, you should be okay. Also, if the proactiv works, dont stop using it. If you want, you can follow up the proactiv with a hydroquinone cream, to help the acne, and teh marks. just let the BP dry on your face first.
