The Yalkut Yosef says that it depends on the reason for saying the blessing:
I don't remember his final conclusion, but (at least in the Chabad world), I have never heard of it being said by a bas-mitzva.
Rav Ovadya Yosef, in Yabia Omer 6 OC 29, writes that one should say the blessing (ברוך שפטרני מעונשה של זו) at the Bat Mitzva celebration without God's name, just as one should recite it without God's name at a boy's Bar Mitzva celebration.
