No, you cannot revoke previously given permission unless at the time you gave it, you gave it explicitly subject to the condition that you could revoke it at any time. However, unfortunately, that condition cannot be added after the fact, so if you "simply" gave permission without conditions, you cannot now limit or revoke it.
