I want to add one dimmer – can this be done?

Perhaps this is the right question….

Thanks ahead of time – I am VERY NEW to this.

I have a light controlled by 2 different wall switches (3-way switches)

I want to add one dimmer – can this be done?
Can I use a simple dimmer (single incandescent light ) for this?

I bought a simple dimmer but it only has attachments for 2 wires – the 3-way switch has 3 wires…

Thanks!!!

It can be done, you need one 3-way dimmer,or a master 3-way dimmer with what is called a slave dimmer,which will allow dimming at both 3-way switch locations.
