Flickering LED's on Dimmer

I am having problems with my LED ceiling can lights flickering when they are on a dimmer. I have the same issue with a chandelier that we have LED bulbs in. I know the can lights are dimmable, but there is no indication on the bulbs which look like the old-style regular bulbs but are actually LED.

Would appreciate any help or thoughts.

There are two basic dimmer groups. The older style..... incandescent and the newer style for LED's and CFL (fluorescent)lights.

Are you using a newer style dimmer rated for LED's ?
