No, the velocity is increased.


In fluid dynamics, Bernoulli's principle states that for an inviscid flow of a nonconducting fluid, an increase in the speed of the fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy.

in this case , the area of the constricted blood vessels are getting smaller and therefore there is an increase in pressure in the blood vessels.the velocity is increased. you may consider the opposite of the principle
