In brief: It has been done
There are probably better ways to treat red spider veins under the nose than ipl.
Many would consider laser, thermocaogulation, and sclerotherapy are all better choices.

Pulsed dye laser may be the most effective, yet can cause more temporary bruising. yet I agree with sclerotherapy injecting small amounts of concentrated saline, or spot treating the veins with a hand cautery. Some healing and minor scabbing may occur with all treatments in the effort to reduce the stubborn vessels. Experience with treatments around the nose is imperative.

In brief: Better lasers
Although ipl lasers can be used for some vascular purposes, particularly telangiectatic matting, there are more effective systems specifically for spider veins, especially when seen on the face.
Diode lasers, yag lasers and thermocoagulation are the preferred systems to achieve adequate response and resolution of facial spider veins. See an experienced vein specialist to ensure appropriate care.
