Hi, ya retin-a does help in scars but there's a specific way of application and duration of application. Apply only thin layer of retin a. Also don't apply anything just by reading on a forum; cream for your skin type is best prescribed only after examining you. Also benzoyl peroxide is not effective for scars, it's only useful for acne and comedones
