In brief: Depends.

That's a very broad question, as there are many mechanisms involved in the production of different aspects of acne, including oil production.
A dermatologist can help you choose a regimen that will work best for your particular situation. As for scarring, the best way to prevent that is to get your acne under control. Again, a dermatologist can help you with that.

In brief: Depends

If you have active scarring acne, consult a dermatologist to consider use of Accutane (which is antibacterial-antioil in effect).
When no longer having active breakouts, use of mechanical dermabrasion, laser and chemical peels often help reduce the appearance of the scarring.
