There is nothing built into MATLAB that does that as far as I know. You'd have to search the literature and find someone who has done it, or invent your own method. Look here :,%20Detection,%20Tracking,%20Gesture%20Recognition,%20Fingerprints,%20Biometrics

You can try this deep learning based face detector:
It has much better performance than the built in vision.CascadeObjectDetector. It can cope with faces not being frontal facing as well. see this example, with MTCNN detections in yellow, and vision.CascadeObjectDetector in teal:
