In brief: See below

Retin-a mirco does not treat acne scarring.
It can help prevent new acne scars by preventing serious breakout as part of an acne treatment regimen. Some patients (especially those with darker skin tones) can develop dark spots from acne lesions. These are not actually scars and Retin-A can help improve them over the course of many months.

In brief: Not for scars

Retin-a is good for texture of skin changes and skin discoloration however it does not treat acne scars.
