In brief: Yes

Treatments with the long-pulse nd:yag lasers are effective in tightening skin.
Some other lasers may also tighten the skin as well. Other technologies used to tighten skin include focused ultrasound (ulthera) and radiofrequency such as endymed, excilis, thermage, viora, vellashape etc.

In brief: Loose skin

Unfortunately loose skin left over from significant weight loss can't be toned up.
You can get surgery to remove the excess skin but it is very expensive and extremely painful.

There are so many options for skin tightening but you have to be realistic.
