As far back as I can remember (adulthood, not childhood) I've always had a very short one on one thigh. I don't know when it appeared.
I started getting fine thread veins around my ankles in my early 20s. In my late 20s I suddenly realised that new veins always appeared after I'd had my legs waxed. I stopped waxing my legs - no more new veins, not even when my weight changed, not even with pregnancy. I had my legs waxed for the first time in ten years - new thread veins appeared.
Interesting purpleyam, I don’t wax my legs so I can’t relate it to anything like that.
I do have a job where I don’t sit down often so perhaps it’s that..I’ve been trying to elevate my legs when I can and if I can prevent them getting much worse I can cope with it. I can just see myself with old granny legs by the time I go on my honeymoon in six months time!
I've had them on the bottom of my thigh towards the back of my knee and down the outside of my calf on one leg for as long as I remember, I'm in my early twenties now. I hate them so much even though they aren't too noticeable unless I stretch the skin. I'm planning on getting them lazered once I'm back working (currently SAHM and can't justify the cost)
