1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

Clindamycin is an antibiotic no scar aide.
Adapalene is a Retin-A derative that will control acne and help reduce fine wrinkles. The effects on scars will be minimal at best. Scars require deep therapy such as fractionated co2 lasers , resurfacing lasers and deep chemical peels applied by properly trained physicians
