Vascularity depends mostly on two things:

1. Body fat % - The lower your BF, the less spongy cover you have over your veins and the more prominant they will be

2. Genetics - Some people are just more vascular

Training (weights and cardio) also increases vascularity...

If you increase your BF% you will probably find they decrease.

What type of veins are they? If they are varicose or spider veins you would have to see a Dr. to get rid of them. If they are just showing because you are lean, hell, be happy girl. Do you know how many girls would love to be lean enough to have their veins show?!
