So many celebs stay mum about the plastic surgery they’ve had, even if it’s a non-invasive procedure like Botox or fillers. Not Courteney Cox.

The actress recently revealed in New Beauty that she’s gotten her facial fillers dissolved.

“I’m as natural as I can be,” she told the publication.

“I feel better because I look like myself.” Her change doesn’t come as a shock.

Last year, she told Bear Grylls in an episode of Running Wild that she regretted her cosmetic procedures.

"Getting older has not been…I don't think it's the easiest thing," she said at the time. "I think I was trying to keep up with getting older, trying to chase that…it's something you can't keep up with."

Courteney told New Beauty that her experience with fillers was gradual, going to various doctors to get small things done that built up over time—which "You have no idea because it’s gradual until you go, 'Oh sh*t, this doesn’t look right.'" She adds that she didn't recognize how she looked in photos.

Your body can do amazing things—this video is proof:

While most facial fillers dissolve on their own over time (hence why they're considered a temporary treatment), you can have fillers removed at any time if you don't like them.

According to RealSelf.com, fillers made with hyaluronic acid can be removed with an injection of hyaluronidase, which dissolves the acid.

Other more permanent fillers will require steroid injections or surgical removal.

She’s not the first to regret going under the knife or needle. "Glee" actress Heather Morris said she removed her implants.

Gwyneth Paltrow revealed to Harper’s Bazaar in 2013 that Botox made her look “crazy.”

And "Dirty Dancing" actress Jennifer Grey told the Mirror in 2012 that she regretted getting a nose job because it made her look unrecognizable.

As for Courteney, her new outlook on aging is refreshing: “I think that I now look more like the person that I was (before adjustments). I hope I do. Things are going to change. Everything’s going to drop. I was trying to make it not drop, but that made me look fake.”
