Will tazorac (tazarotene) tighten the eyelids?

No, not really. Tazorac (tazarotene) is used for acne and mild sun damage. It is a third-generation prescription topical retinoid sold as a cream or gel, usually applied at bedtime after washing your face. Don't use it if you are pregnant or have a chance of becoming pregnant. Dry skin is a common side effect. It does not tighten the eyelids. You can consult an oculoplastic surgeon or plastic surgeon about tightening the lids.
