I think Chekov looks perfect. His real age and the shaved head serve him well for the role. I think that having old age makeup like what McCoy had in TNG would be too distracting.
His head is not shaved, it's natural. Walter Koenig has been wearing a toupee for years. It's only recently that he has started appearing at cons and other public events withoutmit. Now he usually wears a hat.
It's cool that he was willing to not wear it for this. It totally adds to Chekov looking older. It dramatic departure from how he looked in the movies. So it distracts from lack of makeup.
