See below: Tazorac (tazarotene) does not treat acne scarring. It is a topical retinoid similar to, but more potent that retin-a. It can help prevent new acne scars by preventing serious breakouts as part of an acne treatment regimen. Some patients (especially those with darker skin tones) can develop dark spots from acne. These are not actually scars and Retin-A can help improve them over the course of many months.
