You should definitely check with your treating physician since there are some vasculitis diseases that make you contraindicated to these cosmetic procedures. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

Vasculitis describes inflammation of the blood vessels. There are different types of vasculitis affecting big vessels or small ones. Each type behaves differently and require different treatments.
Cosmetic procedures are generally safe with few interactions with other medications; however, it's better to be cautious. I would recommend holding off on any cosmetic procedures until the vasculitis has been clearly diagnosed and you are getting treated. I encourage you to discuss it with the rheumatologist openly, so they can devise the safest treatment plan.
