    I need help or tips on inexpensive/healthy spider vein removal or cure

    I am 27 years old and have gone through a major weight fluxuation over the years. When I was in high school, I went from weighing 130-135 lbs to approximately 205 in less than a year due to medication changes and as I started to lose the weight at a healthy rate (about 5 years of slow weight loss with slight fluxuations), I began to notice Spider Veins on my lower legs. Now that it is close to Summer, I am ashamed of my legs so I'm constantly wearing jeans while attempting to avoid shorts or short dresses at all costs. It isn't easy though because I have some nice Summer clothing but am extremely embarrassed about my legs so I avoid them as much as possible. I would like some help with this issue because I do not have a lot of money to go to electrolosis or laser surgery. Help me please!
