Yes. The Vegas effect (even though it doesn't look right when you first apply it) is the way to go. Set it to work on the alpha channel and composite behind the original, make there not be any repetitions, and remove all the transparency options along the length of the stroke.

However, if you did it using a Track Matte, you would have to precompose it and then apply the Vegas effect. If you did it with the Set Matte effect or the Calculations effect (or some other channel effect), you won't need to do the precomp thing first.
