Hi Saurabh,
Faceclin A gel contains clindamycin and adaplene. Both these drugs work on acne. But none of these is going to help in acne scars.
If you are applying faceclin-A gel for the improvement of acne scars only, then I suggest you to stop it.
Acne scar treatment depends on the type of acne scars. A dermatology opinion must be sought for that.
