Permanent damage after Biore strips?

Patient : I'm on Accutane and have noticed a lot of blackheads crop up on my skin. My doctor recommended Biore strips. Neglecting to read the directions on the box I used four Biore strips within two days (before realizing that they're only meant to be used once every three days). They left my skin red and inflamed, and ripped off some of the skin from around my pores, leaving a crater-like appearance in certain lighting. I experienced no bleeding. I'm wondering if the skin will grow back, or if these craters and uneven texture are permanent.
