Can Fractional Ablative CO2 laser successfully remove or even fade cosmetic eyebrows tattoos?

Can Fractional Ablative CO2 laser successfully remove or even fade cosmetic eyebrows tattoos? I had mine done 3 weeks ago and am devastated with the results. The pigment used contains iron oxide so I am fearful of trying other lasers, such as YAG or Pico. Please help. I am losing a lot of sleep and have severe anxiety...

Neither a Fractional or Ablative CO2 laserwill remove deep pigmentation. The best it would do is stimulate the removal of some of the most superficial pigment.
