About Misty

For over a decade, Misty Shedd has been one of the most sought-after facial filler injectors and trainers in the United States. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Stephen F. Austin State University and became a Registered Nurse in the Critical Care field prior to joining the staff at Dr. Natan Yaker’s plastic surgery practice in 2004. She received her Certification as an Aesthetic Nurse Specialist in 2013.

Ranked #1 in the Southwest and #2 in the U.S. as a nurse trainer for Allergan, Misty has been an certified injector trainer for Allergan since 2011. Due to her extensive experience and expertise in Allergan product training and injection methodology, Misty serves on numerous Advisory Boards including the Allergan Medical Institute, Juvederm Advisory Board, Voluma Advisory Board, Vycross Advisory Board, Allergan Roundtable Board and Allergan Injector Training Team Advisory Board. She was also invited to be a member of the Allergan Ambassador program in 2018.

Recognized for her unique combination of patient care and consummate injection skill, Misty Shedd sees patients from around the world at the Surface Skin Spa in Plano, Texas. Patients trust Misty to help ward off the signs of aging and reinvigorate facial beauty through injection of muscle relaxers such as Botox, filler injections such as Voluma and fat dissolution injections such as Kybella. At Surface Skin Spa, Misty is part of a dedicated group of specialists focused on improving patients’ appearance and overall confidence.


Misty’s philosophy is to provide patient-centered care in the aesthetic setting. She acknowledges that symmetry is beauty and is a true artist in which each patient is a work of art. She aims to continue her education and stays current with the leading aesthetic innovations. She is extremely detail oriented and educates her patient on injections leaving them at ease on what they can expect during and after treatment. She strives to care for her patients by providing their fountain of youth as well as increasing their self-confidence on both a physical and mental level.

Misty stresses the importance of taking into consideration time to heal after having injections. Not knowing if a patient will bruise or not, after an injection is a determining factor whether to inject or not. Many times a patient will say something to the effect of, “I’m in a wedding this weekend” or “I will be on stage, speaking at a conference”. Misty encourages her patients to keep in mind, even though it is not surgery, time for healing may be required.
