In brief: Tanning bed unsafe

Tanning bed exposes the skin to UVA and UVB light which increases wrinkling and spotting of skin.
Extended exposures can lead to skin damage and skin cancer. Here is an article from the Centers for Disease Control: https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/skin/basic_info/indoor_tanning.htm
