Hello, about 5 days ago now I burned my face

Patient: Hello, about 5 days ago now I burned my face with hot cooking oil. For about 4 hours after it happend I constantly applied aloe vera directly from the plant. Starting the next day and ever since I have been applying a combination of neosporin and 99% organic aloe vera gel. The burns are doing much better but I am slightly worried about scarring. My question is, will the nicotine in chewing tobacco make my scarring worse even if I’m using marijuana, a vasodilator?Thanks!
