There is scarring and hyperpigmentation. Those things suck but not as bad as cysts!! I do have one new pimple. Well, it's like 2 (they're a couple). On my left cheek. I panicked a bit when I saw it but I figure worrying will just increase stress. So I'm just gonna ride with it and see where it goes. But overall, my right cheek looks tons better than about 40 days ago. So I'm still hanging!
