The oil is shiny and will make the scars less visible as long as it's there. It will have no long-term effect. I'm sorry that your acne was not managed properly and you got scarred in the first place. This would be a great time to get with your personal physician especially if your Retin-A is not giving you adequate acne relief -- there's much more we can offer.
