Acne detection project. Is SimpleCV appropriate?

Let's say that I have two head shots taken a few days apart of the same person. This person has acne and the acne is clearly visible in both head shots. The acne may improve or worsen in the period of time between the two head shots.

A visual example (since I can't post links): i DOT imgur DOT com SLASH 3vZMNNr.jpg

I want to detect the acne in each photo, and use that information to programmatically figure out whether the acne improved or worsened.

At the moment, I'm reading Programming Computer Vision with Python to learn about computer vision, and SimpleCV has piqued my curiosity. Is there a way to accomplish this acne detection and difference task with SimpleCV? I'd love any recommendations toward the relevant parts of the SimpleCV library.
