Brief Answer:
Tonning of muscles doesn't have much role

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.
Thank you for follow up query.

Tonning of muscles doesn't have much role to play in this.
Visibility of veins can also be due to thin skin which again varies from person to person.

Brief Answer:
These are not varicose veins

Detailed Answer:
I have reviewed the newly uploaded photographs and these are not varicose veins.
These are normal veins which are simply visible underneath the skin.
Varicose veins are swollen and dialated veins unlike the ones on your hand and palms.
