Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream

Has anybody heard of or tried this product for acne scarring? Here is a rundown from an advertisement I found (apologies for the length thereof):

Gamma Hydroxy - the next phase in hydroxy acids

Knowing that the major ingredients powerful enough to have the required resurfacing effect on the skin were hydroxy acids, the R & D team at Skin Doctors went to work on a formula that contained a mix of glycolic and lactic acid - and then added the powerful BHA salicylic acid. They knew they had the exact mix that would result in the most powerful of skin resurfacing formulas. But they also knew that a formula this powerful would be too aggressive on the skin.

Finally, they cracked the code. The secret was not in a single ingredient but in super-stacking them in the right combination to create a cosmeceutical strength resurfacing formula - it was the synergy of the ingredients that became important. Soon they were able to use relatively low doses of a poly hydroxy blend in a cream form that people could use daily in the privacy of their own homes - yet they could achieve results so dramatic they were being compared to chemical peels!

The next paragraph talks about the unforseen side effect of the cream in that it also reverses the effects of aging on the skin, particularly wrinkles - it is being marketed as a wrinkle cream as well as a resurfacing cream for acne scarring.

How can a cream deliver such spectacular skin rejuvination?

It's simple really. The continual skin renewing action of these powerful hydroxy acids are working on your skin 24 hours a day. So, rather than an intense dose of acid on your skin in a short time which leaves you with extreme redness, rawness and peeling - new Gamma Hydroxy works like a "time released" peel constantly resurfacing your skin, day after day. So you get all the benefits of these powerful resurfacing agents - but over a longer period of time. In fact, you should see similar results to a chemical peel in around 12 weeks. But of course, you don't have to wait the full 12 weeks to see real, visible results.

I am considering trying this product despite being highly skeptical of it - I was under the impression that chemical peels did not do much to reduce acne scarring. Does anybody have any opinions on whether it could be beneficial to acne scarring?
