Will follicular acne leave permanent scaring from the red marks? I had a pretty bad initial break out from Accutane papules and pustules only .

In brief: Acne Scars

Even with the most careful and conscientious treatment, acne scars may still occur. But not all scars are created equal.
Generally, acne scars fall under two categories: those caused by a loss of tissue (atrophic), and those caused by an excess of tissue (hypertrophic). Within these categories, acne scars fall into one of four types: ice pick, boxcar, rolling and keloid scars.
