I'm working on hand gestures using Skin tone recognition. Now, since the face also falls in the HSV range of skin tone the face part also comes as positive in the binary image on which i'm applying the convexhull and convexity defects method to detect the palm. I just wanted to know if it was possible to detect the face and remove it from the binary image.

You could try the cascade-classifier, a trained classifier for faces is already part of opencv, have a look in the docu.
