Laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) was utilized to assess age-related changes in the blood microcirculation at the skin sites with different morphology and regulation. The LDF signals obtained from the glabrous skin of the middle finger pad and nonglabrous skin on the dorsal wrist surface were analyzed. Statistically higher baseline perfusion was observed in the zone with glabrous skin in the older group of volunteers compared to younger participants. Observed site-specific and age-related differences in perfusion can be used in the future experimental design for the studies of the blood microcirculation system in patients with different pathologies.
