How often can I have cosmelan MD step 1 treatment?

I had my first cosmelan MD step 1 treatment Jan. 2016, followed by the step 2. I am on cosmelan 2 maintenance treatment after the step 2. Per my assessment I still need to have another treatment. My melasma in my bilateral cheeks slightly fade away , but the brown spots in the area of my forehead and temple were still lingering. I wanted to know if I can have another treatment of step 1 & 2 by next year. Your expertise/opinion is highly appreciated. Thank you.

Melasma and Sun Spots -- Best Treamtent Is Clear + Brilliant / Fraxel 1927 with Microneedling PRP, Pro Yellow is Useful

For melasma, I prefer a combination
approach that includes resurfacing with lasers, microneedling to
improve skin quality and chemical peels. Melasma treatment is
ongoing. Please avoid the sun and consult with an expert in person.
