In brief: Scars

Acne can always be treated effectively and if you want treatment, it is your right.
Being a teen is rough enough without getting bad advice or criticism. Fairly severe acne will produce some scarring, which you may or may not want. Nobody wants severe acne, but if you have mild disease and do not want treatment, it's your business and yours only.
