At La Belle Forme Training Institute (LTI) we are committed to delivering the highest quality training in the best and most appropriate environment possible.

In order to ensure our training candidates are suitable LTI will only train medical professionals such as registered nurses , doctors and dentists. We believe that by doing this we will produce well trained, capable candidates who will have a stronger focus and understanding of patient safety when they establish their private practice

LTI is led by Mr Taimur Shoaib, a Senior Consultant Plastic surgeon who is a worldwide Key Opinion Leader for Allergan, one of the largest suppliers of dermal fillers in the world and the manufacturer of the world’s leading Botulinum Toxin product. Our courses are a mixture of engaging online tutorials and lively face-to-face practical sessions to optimise the learning experience.

La Belle Forme have been delivering training courses to aesthetics professionals for 10 years through various forums and organisations and we have decided that in order to guarantee the quality of courses and their content going forward, we will only deliver these courses through LTI.

We offer state-of-the-art training facilities at the Glasgow Day Surgery Centre with trainers who have been trained and approved by Mr Shoaib. These trainers have years of training experience and are well equipped to deliver an outstanding training programme.

One of our key features is our post training support service which ensures that if any of the models or trainers experience issues after training at LTI we are here to support you 24 / 7.
