I have deep scars on my cheek areas due to acne. I started using it on my face 3 months ago and now the area around my nose looks like a different shade. Is it ok to use it on and around my nose to make up skin look even? My cream is .1% and I use it every night. Thank you.

Retin A after rhinoplasty
Yes, it is ok after 3 months to begin using the topical cream. I would begin using it every third night for one week, then every other night for a week and if you can tolerate it, once a night. The nose is more sensitive than other areas on the face so you may not tolerate it every night. Make sure you use sunblock.
