Facial rigs can be done with blender, yes; you can, for example, check out the Mancandy rig (http://freefactory.org/posts/candy-testers-wanted). There's actually two facial setups in there, on armature layers 9 and 10 (the first two layers after the space between the two
groups of buttons); the second one is the original one, while the first one is based off
techniques described in the book Stop Staring.

A common way of doing them is to use bones on the face to drive shape keys; for an introduction to that, see:


But especially look at the mancandy rig, it shows a good example of a working system.
