In brief: Retin-A
Retin-a may thicken skin.
But, if very thin nothing can make it dramatically thicker.

In brief: Thin Skin
Fragile or thin skin that tears easily is a common problem in older adults.
Aging, sun exposure and genetics all play a role in thinning skin. Certain medications, such as long–term use of oral or topical corticosteroids, also can weaken skin and the blood vessels in the skin. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/healthy-aging/expert-answers/thin-skin/faq-20057753
