I'm female, and I have hair on my chin. How to best remove it?

I started to get the occasional chin hair in my late teens, and I would pluck them as soon as they were long enough to be tweezed. One day I had the stupid idea that it would be easier/faster to shave just that spot instead of waiting for the hairs to grow long enough to tweeze. Don't ever, ever do this. They started to grow in thicker, and they started to spread everywhere the razor touched; instead of fine vellus hair
, I have stubble like a guy. I have to shave this every day. (FYI, my hormonal levels test within normal ranges, but I am naturally more hirsute than most women.)
I'm sick of shaving, sick of having this on my face, and I figure there must be some permanent solution. I imagine MTF transsexuals must go through this? I'm not scared of the pain of electrolysis or laser treatments, however I am scared of any permanent scars or redness on my face. I'm also quite poor. What are my options?
