Multiple options: I don't think that there is a single best way but there are mutiple options including sclerotherapy, ipl, laser, veinwave, veingogh and micro needle radio frequency. The size of the veins and the training and experience of the treating physician usually influence what treatment is recommended. My usual treatment is sclerotherapy or laser for very small veins. You should see a vein specialist.

No: Visible veins on the side of the head is not bad. When blood does not drain from the head as fast as it is arriving, veins can become engorged and appear enlarged. As long as they are not painful, tender or bleeding there is little to worry about.

Congenital: You were born that way, and often times there are relatives with the same type of vein prominence. The manifestation is made more prominent with straining, talking, singing, yelling---anything that will result in a valsalva maneuver, which is basically holding one's breath and straining down.
