It won’t hurt to let it go and let the old flowers and petals just fall off.

However, it would be best to deadhead it. This will help the rose put the energy into producing more flowers rather than rose hips. Use sharp pruners and cut back to right above the next set of leaves. It’s recommended to do a 45-degree angle cut.
