Default Veins....?

I've been noticing an abundance of blue lines showing up on my upper thighs... I'm not sure if this is from weight loss or if its my body's way of welcoming me to my 30's, lol... Anyone else have this happen?

Spider veins .. the purple squiggly ones, pop up as you age. Fortunately they're not the veins that cause women pain.

I have them, and I'm only 22. I think you can also get them if you have a job where you're standing a lot (which I do).

Mine magically appeared at age 22, when I worked 12 1/2 hours a day on my feet.

Spider vein removal is on my goal wish-list.
