Tretinoin helpful for scar from infected pimple?

I've been using the DKR for about 3 months now and really haven't had any active acne. However, i had a inflamed pimple that became infected and spread over the summer. Where it spread to are now just brown spots that are fading, but where the pimple originally was there's some sort of scar. It's hard to explain, its like if the pimple is there, just not inflamed or as red. It's definitely not a normal red spot. I was prescribed tretinoin .025% saying that it would help fade the scar. I was just wondering if anyone had any success with tretinoin.

I've been doing DKR still and every 3rd night DKR in the morning and tretinoin at night.

Also, I've heard all positive effects from tretinoin are reversed after you stop usage. Since I am only using it for scars, I don't really have anything to worry about once I stop right?
