Ok, the following is from personal experience over a decade...

Firstly, the lightening of the overall facial hairs, and reduction in density are dependant on continued regular tweezings over an extended time period (the longer the period, the more lasting the effect). Essentially the repeated tweezing is causing stress to the hair roots. It will not become apparent in the short term...but as the repeated stress continues the hair roots become exhausted in their biological reactions... There is no noticeable effect on the surrounding skin...it will regenerate at the same rate it would have, if no hair root stressing had occurred.
Problem for most is that it's a process which requires patience and continued regular application (daily-to-several times per each passing week). The hair root stress effect is cumulative... So being dilligent especially at the beginning months, is important.
I opinion that persons who tend to have hair that jams up excessively under the skin, may not find the tweezing desirable... Also, it may or may not make application of electrolysis needles harder--due to supposed "curling" and "toughening" of the folicles (don't think I ever noticed such follicle effects--but each person's skin and hairs behave uniquely different).
Lastly, the reason for using high quality (professional) S.S. angled tweezers is to minimise the task by creating precise grabs and pulls on each chosen hair, and thereby minimising slips and at-surface breaks... First and foremost, the most tweezable candidates should be each hair tha regrows dark-colored.
If you adopted this, realise that although it may lighten your facial beard to the point where when you shave there is no more beard shadow...there will still be sufficient lightened hair regrowth, which will require an electric razor usage (presently for me it's at least every two days or so). Usually when I groom to present a femme image...my Norelco gets used the same day I've tweezed... Very hot humid days present no problem since I have no beard line, nor need for any sort of foundation covering.
It likely will feel odd on the first few days (the hair pulls)...but eventually your focus will be on precision uprooting and overall thoroughness.
