Yes: Medications that contain a retinoid (such as adapalene, tretinoin, or tazarotene) have a powerful effect on preventing acne lesions, but also help smooth scarring and lighten marks (hyperpigmented areas) left by pimples. It can be a slow process, but little by little this medication should help.
