The general consensus is that no topical will help scarring. This is scarring in the sense of indentations, not red marks.

As for recommendations it depends on what kind of scarring you have. It is highly unlikely you will ever completely remove a scar, although great improvements are possible. Especially if your scarring is severe all the money in the world may not get you the results you hope for.

Actually, retinoids can and do help indented scarring. There can be appreciable improvement with continued use of a retinoid.

This. Also, I think when you combine retinoids with something like dermarolling it will help even more. I'm doing this method at the moment but it's only been about 6 weeks so far but I do think I've seen some improvement.
