I have a permanent eyebrow done recently, and wish it has never happened. The brows are too arched, one side is more arched than the other. Laser seems to be dramatic with long recovering process (1 year over multiple sessions). Are there any recommended ways to speedup the fading process without damaging brow hair and causing weird coloring. The pigment used is called 'kolorsource' in dark brown. Some link points to Retin-A which will be effective and actually help grow hair. Please advise.
Method to Safely Speedup the Fading of Permanent Eyebrows and Hopefully Eventually Erase?

Fading permanent makeup
It will take a while, but using a product like a retinol or retin-A or a bleaching product like hydroquinone will fade the tattoo. Using a topical product to fade the tatto won"t damage the hair follicle like a laser most likely would.
Laser option for safe and effective removal of cosmetic ink
If treating eyeliner ink, corneal shields may be worn to protect the eyes so that lasers are an option as well.
Ink, whether used for cosmetic treatments or decorative tattoos, is permanent. Attempting to remove it with topical products will be ineffective. Using a medical device, such as a laser, allows for fragmentation of the ink into particles for progressive fading.
Cosmetic ink has inherent challenges more so than decorative tattoo ink, so having an experienced practitioner is key. See the below link that describes this in detail with before/after photos.
