In brief: Scars are permanent

A wash will not eliminate scars.

In brief: No

Pimples and acne scars are 2 distinctly different things.
Pimples are a result of clogged pores and bacteria. They respond well to face washes and topical creams whereas acne scar are due to prolonged inflammation of the dermis due to acne that was improperly treated or not treated at all.
