Is Electrolysis for Light Hair Removal Too Expensive?

I had Laser hair removal on my chin (several sessions), which removed all the darker hair. My practitioner warned me at the beginning that I would then need Electrolysis to remove the lighter hair...but didn't warn me of the cost: $100 per 15 minutes!
Considering that I've already spent around $500 on the Laser treatments, isn't this rate excessive?
Alternatives to electrolysis
Electrolysis is effective but can be time consuming, requiring mulitple sessions, and thus costly. Perhaps you can purchase a series of treatments at a discounted rate.
Other options include shaving - yes shaving, and it will NOT make the hair darker or thicker (I rountinely shave my fine ligth facial hair - think dermaplaning only a lot cheaper because done at home), plucking, waxing (these can cause irritation so be cautious), and use of depilatory creams or growth inhibiting cream - Vaniqa. Vaniqa is a prescription product that inhibits hair growth. Recommended use is twice a day, however, less applications may work for maintenance.
