In brief: No

Acne scars are full thickness injuries to the skin.
Massage can provide some improvement acutely, so the washing action may help a little. There are many ways to treat acne scars, because there are many types of acne scars. None of the treatments are perfect, but, when selected appropriately, can provide some improvement.

In brief: Probably not

The face wash should help to control the acne, and in doing so should help with redness, etc that can accentuate any scarring.
Unfortunately, the face wash will have minimal direct effect on any true scarring.
