I would just create a routine to do it.
You can do it any way you want, with recursion or what not.

// this is UNTESTED code. May have errors
public int power(int base, int power)
{
if(power == 1)
{
return base;
}

return base * power(base, power-1);
}

using System.Math;

...

int x = 4
int y = pow (x, 3);    // returns x raised to the 3rd power
