I have shallow indented scars left behind after my breakouts - Is my retin a giving me scars?

I have been using retin a .1 for almost three months. When I get a pimple it dries it out and speeds up the process of getting rid of it nicely but after every break out is gone there seems to be a very shallow indented scar left behind . Am I not moistirizing enough or is it because I tend to intervene with my fingers sometimes to help bring the pimple to the surface. Should I stop doing that and just let it 'come out' and loosen on its own gradually?
