No the handkerchief did NOT heal. The Spirit of God, who remained with Paul and all that identified with Paul, healed. God very poignantly pointed to Paul as His servant and that Paul should be heard by those who wished to know God as there were many anti-Christ's then, even as now. Perhaps this should also be our cue to read the letters of Paul frequently, with prayer for guidance from Gods spirit, so that we may also know God as He wants us to see Him.

The Bible records that not only did an object such as Paul's handkerchief have healing power, but that even Peter's shadow could heal people upon whom it fell (Acts 5:15-16). 

There was nothing extraordinary about the handkerchief or the shadow by themselves, nor did any of the apostles claim any such ability on their own behalf (Acts 3:12). But these objects were manifesting power granted to them by the risen and ascended Christ, for the purpose of helping those in need, and of witnessing to people of the truth of Jesus' identity as the Son of God, and the fact that it was only through faith in Him that forgiveness of sins and eternal life could be obtained (Acts 3:13-26; Acts 4:8-12).
