    Will Differin help fade acne scars?

    I have a few small, shallow holes in my right cheek from cystic acne. Will Differin gel help smooth these out?

    I've personally never used differin, but I'd say no. That's not it's purpose.

    It will fade red marks or blemishes, but not holes/indents. What really helped my indents are Silkia camellia oil and Epidermx microdermabrasion cream. I had 5 pretty deep indents on my forehead from cystic acne and after using these 2 products religiously for over a year now, 3 of them are 100% filled in and the other two 99% filled in. I have 3 indents immediately above my upper lip also (from picking at blackheads). They are not as much filled in as those on the forehead but half better. I only need a concealer there. But I don't need any concealer for my forehead anymore.
