First, I would need to know how long ago you stopped, and how long were you pinching. If you just recently stopped, then I would give it some time- at least 6 months. I would recommend a good moisturizer cream, maybe one with HA to help repair the damage.
If it has been longer, then I would see a well qualified dermatoligist for evaluation. I do not think microneedling would be the best option. You seem young, so I think you have plenty of natural collagen and time to heal.
Best luck to you,
