Question Scars--- Plz read

Hey all I'm just wondering here--I've had acne for about 3 years now, severe at first, but now its mild-moderate. Anywhoo, I was just wondering about scarring. Right now I don't really have any, are they going to come or what? I've *never* popped a zit, but I have picked off those little whiteheads quite a bit. Is this why I don't see much, if any scarring? If so then I'm happy cause I've vowed never to pick anymore.

i have had acne foralmost 10 years and have plenty of scars though ive never picked. you can get scars without picking if you have cysts. you dont pick and dont have scars because so far you have only pimples. but i have to say, some of those pimples might get popped naturally, like when you smile or laugh. but regardless of what form of acne you have or whether you smile/laugh or not (haha!), you should be doing the best you can to rid of the acne. if youre a girl past adolescence, you are likely to have acne for quite a stretch. keep yourself educated and treat it properly.

iof you were asking if a scar appears with a delay, say, a few weeks after a pimple or cyst goes away, it doesnt happen like that. if you dont see a scar, or even a blemish, right after the pimple/cyst disappears, that means you dont have one.
