Noticeable veins in leg, reason and treatment?

I am 32 years old female. 5 5 height and 138 pounds. Six months ago, I noticed veins poping out on my left leg upper calf near the knee . Now the veis are getting more noticable. I am a healthy individual who works out 3-4 times a week (cardio and weight). Would you please advise the reasons behind this issue and if there are any treatments available
