In brief: It has been done
Techically ipl isn't really a laser but it is similar in that both treat veins by applying heat to them. Ipl has certainly been used for treating red spider veins on the legs but there are other methods of treatment that are more common these days, including rf thermocoaulation, laser, and sclerotherapy.
Most of the time, when it comes to leg veins, vein experts will tell you that sclero is best.

In brief: Fractional 1064
We recommend using the fractional 1064 laser instead of ipl.
You would need about 3 treatments for spider veins in the leg.

In brief: Yes
Some who are treated with sclerotherapy can subsequently have fine, small red veins known as telangiectatic matting which tend to respond nicely to ipl.
