Hi Glenview,

No.  As long as a 70 year old patient (or 80 year old for that matter) is otherwise in good health and is motivated to rejuvenate their skin, a fractionated CO2 laser treatment with Fraxel repair can be performed.  Be sure to choose your treating physician most carefully.  Good luck and be well.
