Elena, with my current doc, I'm on "maintenance" treatments. We use the same lasers, but vary the intensity as needed. I go in every 6 months to a year (I also to self-checks at home). So far I've only needed 1 treatment, but that was about 1.5 years after my last treatment. That treatment progressed the same way my 'normal' treatments did.
I was more or less 'forced' to start maintenance treatments as my doc's lasers had done all they could do without risk of scarring. I'm currently working on trying to get a second opinion.
Hope this helps...
The hope a dream and the wings to be free
