Spray tan or Cremes : If you mean leg veins, there are waterproof cremes like derma blend that cover flat veins, not varicose veins. Also spray tan is available at salons or tanning stores. If patients re worried about pronounced veins on arms, we recommend compression sleeves for running or weight lifting... Available at sport stores, phlebology offices, juzo or medi online and compression socks or stockings for legs.

Treat them: Although there are spray tans and cover up make up that can be used, as dr. Morrison said, the best way to make thread veins less noticeable is to treat them. This can be done with sclerotherapy or laser, although most would say that sclerotherapy is more effective.
