How to Use Load Balancer Internal IP To Avoid Unnecessary Bandwidth Charges

Hi, DigitalOcean load balancer seems to only have a public IP (no internal IP).

As far as I understand, if I were to send traffic from one droplet (consumer) to a service (few droplets BEHIND A LOAD BALANCER) on the SAME VPC, I would be charged for bandwidth although the consumer and the service are on the same VPC (because I would be using the load balancer public IP).

Is there a way to use the load balancer internal IP?
Maybe a DNS name I’m unaware of?

Thank you
