How to get rid of spider veins? (and into short-shorts)

What is the most effective procedure for removing these ghastly spider veins from my left thigh? Short-shorts season is upon us, and now this is on my mind... Lasers? Sclerotherapy? I am 31, female.

I started getting spider veins over the last 4-5 years, but only on one leg. They are on the front and back of my left thigh, mid-way down.
I go through phases of not exercising (espec in the winter) and I know that this contributes.
I have tried taking horse chestnut pills (there are a few studies that support their effectiveness), but they make me nauseous, so I stopped. Has anyone has success with this supplement?
Also: Should I be worried about these spider veins and the fact that I am getting them only on one leg?
