hello, regarding your first question yes use of retino ac gel will reduce the acne and the spots but will have little effect on scars for which treatment will depend on the amount, type and severity of scarring.
For second question you can use a kojic acid or hydroquinone cream with a sunscreen during day time to improve your complexion. take care

Dermatologist Dr. Ilyas Patel's  Response
Hello sunil, continue treatment for acne, even after control , take tab. Azithromycine 500 mg three days a week for 6 months, if active lesions in between occurs , apply clindamycine gel at night on lesions only. For spots and complexion , avoid sun exposure, do face wash with glycolic acid and kozic acid containing face wash. Take L glutathion containg tablet for 2 years. Be positive, avoid tension, avoid milk, ghee, oily food. Best wishes.. I hope you may get good result.
