                            oClientContext.ExecutingWebRequest += claimsHelper.clientContext_ExecutingWebRequest;
                PeopleManager oPeopleManager = new PeopleManager(oClientContext);
                PersonProperties oPersonProperties = oPeopleManager.GetPropertiesFor("i:0#.f|membership|youruserid@yoursite.onmicrosoft.com");
                
                oClientContext.Load(oPersonProperties, p => p.AccountName, p => p.UserProfileProperties);
                oClientContext.ExecuteQuery();

                Console.WriteLine(oPersonProperties.UserProfileProperties.Count.ToString());
                
                foreach (var oProperty in oPersonProperties.UserProfileProperties)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0}: {1}",
                        oProperty.Key.ToString(), oProperty.Value.ToString()));
                    
                }
                Console.ReadLine();

            }

CSOM userprofile

The account parameter to be passed for the method oPeopleManager.GetPropertiesFor is not straight-forward. For office 365 SharePoint accounts, the parameter has to be passed in this format "i:0#.f|membership|youruserid@yoursite.onmicrosoft.com". Replace the youruserid accordingly.
