Legs can raise a whole lot of issues, from unwanted hair and cellulite, to hard-to-get-rid-of spider veins. It's enough to make you swear off shorts and skirts and vow to only wear pants forever. But we've put together this guide to help you show some skin with confidence. Find your problem and get to fixing.

Vanquish Spider Veins

About 50% of women over age 50 have spider veins (those small, dilated blood vessels just beneath your skin's surface that give off a serious road-map vibe). They're typically caused by genetics, but obesity and prolonged standing or sitting with legs crossed can also cause them by compromising blood flow.
The fast fix: 
The only immediate solution to hide veins is temporary: You can use a tinted leg spray or brushing on waterproof body makeup, like Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15 (, dermablend.com).
The serious solution: 
The gold standard for treating spider veins is sclerotherapy, an in-office procedure in which each vein is injected with a solution that causes it to collapse, says Diane Walder, MD, a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist based in Miami. It's effective—treated veins typically fade within a few weeks—but it's also pricey. Treating both legs can take up to four 5 to 0 sessions spaced six to eight weeks apart. If you're dealing with severe varicose veins, see a vascular specialist for further treatment options, like laser ablation, Walder adds.

Hair growth on your legs typically slows with age (score one for getting older!). The bad news: the skin on your legs also gets drier with time, meaning hair removal is more likely to cause irritation.
The fast fix: 
Razors are the gold standard for quick, easy hair removal, and models with multiple blades get the job done in fewer strokes and minimize nicks and razor burn, says Arielle Kauvar, MD, clinical professor of dermatology at New York University Langone Medical Center. Try Schick Intuition Naturals Sensitive Care (, ), with four blades placed in a skin-conditioning solid that melts onto wet skin as you shave. Moisten skin with warm water first, and shave in the morning, when legs are less likely to be swollen, so more of each hair's length is exposed to the blade, resulting in a longer-lasting smooth-to-the-touch feel.
The serious solution: 
The LightSheer Duet hair-removal laser (an in-office procedure) is faster and less painful than its predecessors. Its vacuum head gently pulls skin closer to the light source, so more energy can reach (and destroy) follicles. But you only feel the vacuum sensation, sans any stinging. The price depends on the size of the area you're targeting, from around 0 for a single session on your toes (you'll need several, no matter where you get it done) to 0 for your entire leg and bikini area. If you'd prefer a DIY option, Walder recommends using the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X (9, triabeauty.com), the first FDA-approved option for home use, every two weeks for up to three months.

Hide Cellulite

More than 85% of women experience dimpling, which gets worse with age—likely because skin's connective tissue weakens, allowing underlying fat to bulge.
The fast fix: 
A lotion with theophylline (a diuretic agent) or caffeine, like the Bioelixia Body Shaper Cellulite Contour Cream (, bioelixia.com), can temporarily plump skin's surface, so legs appear smoother, says Miami-based dermatologist Leslie Baumann, MD. Massage the cream into your skin twice a day for best results, says Walder. For even more camouflage, add a tinted leg spray, like MAC Skinsheen Leg Spray (, nordstrom.com), which disguises the lumpy texture but is easier to use than self-tanner because it washes off at the end of the day. Another temporary cellulite fix: Do an inverted yoga pose—something as simple as making an “L” with your body by lying on the floor and resting your legs against a wall—can drain excess fluid from fat cells and improve puckering for a few hours.
The serious solution: 
Try Cellulaze, one most popular options for treating cellulite. The procedure involves melting fat and breaking the fiber bands that cause that uneven, dimpled appearance with a tiny laser fiber inserted under the skin. You'll only need one treatment, but it'll cost you about ,000 to ,000. A less pricey option is endermologie, which combines high suction and massage to break up the fibrous bands causing the lumpy appearance and clear out the lymphatic fluid that builds up in cellulite. It's also pricey, at 0 to ,200 per session. "While none of these procedures are guaranteed to completely remove all of the cellulite, a patient can expect to see anywhere from 20–75% improvement in its appearance,” says Walder.
