In brief: Yes

Pharmacologically, the influence of smoking on wound healing is complicated, and neither nicotine alone nor any other single component can explain all of the effects of smoking on wounds.
What is certain is that smoking cessation leads to improved repair and reduces wound infection (sorensen et al., 2003; lauerman, 2008). www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/pmc2903966.
