Loss of fat: Over the years, the subcutaneous fat in our body naturally atrophies. Think of the difference between the cheeks of a chubby baby and a 90 year old man. This is also true in the hands.

Weakened vein walls: It is normal for hand veins to become thinner (and therefore more prone to bruising marks, i.e."bursting") as you age. The skin overlying the hand veins also thins rather dramatically with older age, making the veins more prone to bruising w/ mild trauma.
