no, not directly. Tea tree oil is a disinfectant and fungacide. It has no exfoliating or pigment inhibiting qualities.

for fading red marks the typical treatment options are: ahas, bhas, hydroquininone, topical retinoids, azeliac acid. Each option has different merits and constraints.

I have used Jason's Tea Tree Oil Gel and it has worked well. Kept the acne at bay and also made my face soft. But the Regimen with the BP is working even better. I sometimes use the tea tree oil as the moisturizing step in the Regimen. I still use the tea tree oil gel for almost everything else (i.e. insect bites or shaving nicks)
