Pop veteran Cher has turned to acupuncture in a bid to stave off facial wrinkles.

The 58-year-old STRONG ENOUGH singer - who has famously undergone the surgeon's knife on repeated occasions to enhance her appearance - is already feeling and noticing the positive affects of the relaxing practice.

Her biographer MARK BEGO says, "She started having it done to eliminate the frown lines. It helps to relax the muscles and stimulate the skin by bringing blood to the spots where the needles are inserted. The skin looks fresher and feels firmer."

Cher is currently in the midst of her farewell tour, which will finally end in Australia next year (05) after 32 months on the road.
