Tanned 2x in my life... lead to thin, veiny skin?!

Hello,

I recently visited TWICE a tanning salon for the first time in my LIFE, where I laid on the tanning beds for exactly 10 minutes, with about 3 to 4 days of rest in between the two visits. I am 24 years old and had previously took care of my skin, always shielding my face from the sun, staying out of the sun as much as possible. I now worry because I have noticed the skin on the back of my hands and arms are considerably thinner than they used to look and I am worried it was due to the intensive tanning that I took in on those two occasions. Could I have prematurely aged the skin on the back of my hands? I've always had veiny hands but now the veins are very visible and protrude so much more.

Can two tanning sessions cause such permanent, visible damage???
