Does Finacea have any type of effect on pitted scars, or previously scarred skin?

I'm currently using Doxycycline and Aczone as antibiotics, and I was on Atralin until I realized it was exfoliating to the point of digging up previously healed atrophic scars! Therefore, I stopped using it. I told my derm, and she said she couldn't see the scars too well and they should 'fill in' nicely. Whatever there. But she prescribed me Finacea instead. Gathering from what I've heard, it's good for rosacea and acne...but it sorta does the same thing as a retinoid, right? It exfoliates the skin in a way? Will this mean I'll just uncover more scars? I refuse to use it if this is the case.

Please help!!
