I agree with Dr. Hughes and Dr. Schwartz. It is best to wait until you are done with all your sessions to avoid any reaction/complications.

It’s not recommended you tan while being treated for laser hair removal, you could increase sensitivity to the skin and pigment.

Tanning machines are never "safe" to go inside regardless of when you have had laser hair removal. If you go in the sun, use a full spectrum (UVA and UVB) sun block.
