I have spider veins AND vericose veins that are very visible on my legs. I'm only 24, it's genetic. From what I was told I could have saline injections to reduce the appearance of the veins every so often which I haven't followed through with (yet). Talk to your doctor or dermatologist and see what they recommend.
