Depends...: ...On where the veins are. Most veins in your face and neck will dilate with straining. This is a normal response.

Not really: Wearing graduated compression stockings, avoiding standing for long periods of time, weight control, regular exercise, putting your feet up when you can, and not getting pregnant are all ways that have been proposed as helping to prevent the progression of vein disease. Unfortunately none of these things will prevent the inevitable, and that is the fact that vein disease progresses over time.
