Pantyhose to work?

After ten years of being a lab rat in grad school and thereafter, I just took a corporate position. A complete (fun!) overhaul of my wardrobe resulted in the purchase of a handful of skirts that I am dying to wear...
...but I hate pantyhose. However, I play flag football, and rugby, and while my legs aren't horribly scarred, there are enough bruises/ small blemishes from scratches, etc, that are visible. My genetics necessitate a pretty much daily shaving maintenance routine post-waxing, and my sensitive skin doesn't always react well to razors :(.
When I go out, I keep my legs bare, and friends claim I'm the only one that sees these marks, but they're there. My legs definitely have blemishes. My question is, should I suffer the annoyance of pantyhose on a daily basis, or are a few blemishes/ small scars acceptable in a work environment? I am otherwise very well-groomed, stylish, and work-appropriate.
Thanks for your input. :)
