Facial sunbeds...do they exist?

We all know that sunbeds can clear our skin but I was wondering whether there is a product that is like a sunbed but just for the face. Basically going to sunbeds cost a bomb and it's really inconvenient. I live in the U.K. where we don't get much sun so the only alternative is to use sunbeds if I really want to have clear skin. I can't use antibiotics (and don't like them anyway) and have tried everything else to no avail.

I know sunbeds are not good for you and there is the chance of skin cancer but my derm said it is safe if you do it for a maximum of 10-15mins every month or two. So long as you wear a high factor lotion.

They invented facial saunas for those that didn't want to go to saunas steam their whole bodies so maybe they have invented facial sunbeds with UV

Anyone know??? Thanks for any input.

The only thing similar I have heard of is light treatments (not UV radiation though) for the face for acne and maybe scar treatments. These are only in doctor offices of course though. Sorry I'm not much help.
