Like with any correspondence you should start it out with addressing them by their rank. You don't need to use it over and over in every single text sent back and forth during the conversation. That's just extra. But definitely open the conversation with addressing them by their rank

I use their rank abbreviation. Always. But, that's just me.

side story - kinda funny - years ago, I sent an email to my (female) commander, and it began with "Ma'am" - autocorrect changed it "Mama" - I didn't catch it, until she replied...after my explanation (and profuse apologies), all was good...
