will differin 0.1% thicken skin?

i have a bout of comedonal acne after facial surgery, and developing hematoma/ internal scar tissue. my skin is also thinner because it was treated w steroids (i still have adhesions, but i am gonna stop the steroids). i was wondering if differin can thicken my skin ?

Given this situation, I do not think differin will be helpful.  Post a picture for better advice, and see the help of a cosmetic dermatologist with expertise in laser and scar therapy.  I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Emer.
